PAE’s staff is comprised of two primary groups: data analysts, who review and enter the information about both children and families, and the PAE coordinators, who work closely with the children’s county caseworkers and CSR workers. Data analysts assure that provided information is consistent with legislation and in an approved format. PAE coordinators closely track all children with a goal of adoption who do not have an adoptive resource; they work closely with the child’s caseworker to maximize all recruitment efforts.
PAE coordinators essentially act as a consultant to the caseworker as they attempt to achieve permanency for children. Approximately 70 percent of children without a resource who are registered with PAE ultimately achieve permanency.
