Child Foster Care Program: Permanency

Permanency | Adult Foster Care

Permanency for children in foster care means finding a safe and stable home in a timely manner. Concurrent Permanency Planning means finding them homes more quickly than ever before.

Concurrent Permanency Planning simultaneously develops two permanency plans for children: a plan for reunification with a parent and a plan for permanent placement away from their parents - such as an adoptive home - if they cannot safely return to their home.

Children may be placed in relative or non-relative foster homes while their parents complete their case plan. It is important that the foster family actively supports the children and children's parents' efforts to reunify. If children cannot return to their family and parental rights are terminated, the foster parents may be given the opportunity to adopt the children.
