December 2013Vol. 14, No. 9Resource Parent Recruitment Toolbox

The Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition released a toolbox specifically designed to assist permanency workers in finding families and establishing lasting connections for youth in foster care. The Extreme Recruitment Toolbox compiles an array of resource documents that aim to facilitate the process of matching children to a network of suitable adults or adoptive parents within a 12–20 week time period.

The toolbox, which contains a timeline, checklists, an action plan, and related documents for quick use and referral, is divided into the following eight sections:

  • Weekly action plan template
  • Supporting documents for permanency
  • Contact log
  • Concurrent recruitment list
  • Extreme recruitment staffing
  • Family search checklist
  • Roadmap to permanency
  • Extreme recruitment closing summary
