Resource Family Approval Program
The Resource Family Approval Program includes assessing all families who wish to provide out-of-home care for children, and adoptive or guardianship families. RFA Program ensures standards of safety are met in each resource family home. The Resource Family Program includes licensed foster homes, resource care providers, adoption, guardianship and recruitment services for care providers in Kings County. Resource families are necessary to Kings County Child Protective Services (CPS), as children in out-of-home placement need to live in safe homes while they are not living with their parents. In the event that a child cannot permanently return home to their parents, CPS strives to place children for adoption or guardianship in safe, nurturing, permanent homes.
