Achieving Permanency: Guidelines for Expectations of County Child Welfare Staff

Achieving Permanency: Guidelines for Expectations of County Child Welfare Staff
April 21, 2009 Stuart Foundation

This guide serves as a model for agencies in finding family permanency for children and youth. It suggests that child welfare tasks focus on safety and on helping young people leave foster care for permanent homes.

The guide can be used to:
• clarify expectations with agency staff regarding permanency
• evaluate staff performance
• prioritize permanency tasks so that permanency becomes as intuitive as safety and well-being in the agency
