ATLANTA (AP) - State human services officials are partnering
with a Seattle-based foundation to get more would-be foster
children into permanent homes.
The Georgia Department of Human Resources Division of Family and
Children Services and Casey Family Programs will partner to invest
several million dollars over the next few years to strengthen DFCS'
ability to find permanent homes for some of its most difficult
child welfare cases.
Those include older children and those with emotional problems.
Georgia is working with the Seattle group to conduct case reviews to determine the specific barriers a particular child faces to a permanent home solution.
