May 2013Vol. 14, No. 4Lifelong Families Practice Tools
The Annie E. Casey Foundation's former direct-service agency, Casey Family Services, developed and tested a foster care practice model titled Lifelong Families. The practice model is intended to improve practice within private child welfare agencies to achieve permanency for children and youth in foster care. In addition to the many resources related to the practice model—including a brochure and a video—Annie E. Casey recently released a practice toolkit. The toolkit contains a case planning tool, a permanency team process grid, a supervisory tool, and other materials.
The toolkit is available on the Annie E. Casey website:
