Family to Family

Recognizing that care of the child is the essential component of foster care, family to family meetings are being implemented whereby a family of origin and the foster family will have the opportunity to meet and discuss all aspects of the child's care ranging from medical concerns to what is the child's favorite toy.

It is an opportunity to remind all that they are a team working to support the family and child toward safe family reunification or permanency.
