Title: Permanency Options for Youth in Care

Date/Time: February 20 from 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Location: Professional Development Program-4 Tower Place, Room 608, Albany, NY 12203

 

Permanency for children and youth is critical to a child’s sense of well-being, safety, and long-term success in life especially for youth in care. When young people age out of the foster care system, they need responsible adults who are willing to provide various supports that will help the youth transition to adulthood. This training will focus on defining permanency and identifying the permanency options for children and youth to be explored if reunification with birth families is not possible. Those options include adoption, guardianship (including KinGAP), and Another Planned Permanent Living Arrangement (APPLA).
