Foster Care and Permanency

Foster Care and Permanency

The Center for States helps agencies build capacity to develop, implement, and sustain a broad-service continuum to promote increased safety, permanency, and well-being for children and youth in foster care. Strategies include building capacity in addressing concepts of normalcy and reasonable and prudent parent standards, providing family-based alternatives to congregate care, and offering support services to kinship and guardianship families. Our focus will also include best practices and strategies to improve placement stability and permanency. Peer networks for foster care managers will also be used to build capacity.
