Out-of-Home Services

The Center for States helps child welfare agencies build capacity to develop, implement, and sustain a broad continuum of out-of-home services that promote safety, permanency, and well-being for children and youth. Capacity building strategies include developing programs and practices that support kinship and guardianship families and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) children and youth; addressing normalcy and reasonable and prudent parent standards; and preventing child sex trafficking. The Center’s work promotes best practices and strategies for improving placement stability and permanency.
