Event description

Description

The purpose of the Resource Family Approval Program is to implement a unified, family-friendly, and child-centered resource family approval process to replace the existing multiple processes for licensing foster family homes and approving relatives and non-relative extended family members as foster care providers, and approving families for legal guardianship or adoption. The RFA Program will eliminate duplication, coordinate approval standards, and provide a comprehensive assessment of all families. A Resource Family shall be considered eligible to provide foster care for related and unrelated children in out-of-home placement, shall be considered and approved for adoption or guardianship, and shall not have to undergo any additional approval or licensure.

This training is intended to be delivered as written by a co-training team comprised of a trainer and a representative from California Department of Social Services RFA team. This training is geared toward training Child Welfare staff who will be working within the county’s RFA Program.
