The Family Preservation Archives, headed by Dr. Barbara Solomon, is a collection of data gathered from community-based family
preservation networks (CFPNs) in Los Angeles County. As of 2008, the Family Preservation Archives documented over 4000 families
or "cases." From 2002 to 2007, this collection was stored at the Hamovitch Research Center in the School of Social Work at
the University of Southern California. The collection includes records relating to the design, implementation, and maintenance
of the database; the development of the primary data collection instrument; and the ongoing training and consultation between
the CFPN, Department of Children and Family Services of the Los Angeles County, and the Family Preservation Archives.
