CA meetings with foster parents and relative caregivers

Children's Administration seeks your input on two significant initiatives:

  1. CA seeks to improve our home study for all out of home caregivers by implementing a unified home study. The unified home study will improve outcomes for children in out-of-home care and reduce duplicate work for caregivers and social workers. We want to hear your ideas for improving home studies.
  2. In the next year, CA will be restructuring our recruitment and retention contracts. Please come join us to talk about what recruitment and retention services are important to you.

Jeanne McShane, the Acting Administrator for the Division of Licensed Resources, will attend two meetings in each of the new regions to get your input between August and September of this year. All caregivers (relatives and licensed foster parents) for CA dependent children are welcome to attend any of these meetings.
