CCAI Hosts ‘Improving Foster Adoptive Parent Recruitment’ Briefing

In an effort to bring lessons learned in the field to impact federal legislation, CCAI convened this briefing to present data and trends in foster care, and share lessons learned from successful parents recruitment models. This briefing examined data related to older youth, who more frequently languish in care and are more likely to age out of care without any promise of permanence. Agency representatives shared information about their innovative recruitment models and how federal policy was supporting their work or if policy barriers needed to be removed to allow for best practices to be used in the field.
