Placement Stability Toolkit

The National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections (NRCPFC) recently posted "A Web-Based Placement Stability Toolkit" designed to help States, Tribes, and agencies (1) identify challenges to providing stable foster care placements for children and (2) learn about effective practices that can increase placement stability. The toolkit includes:

  • A self-assessment tool that can be used by organizations to determine their strengths and challenges related to placement stability for children in foster care
  • An overview of placement stability in a question-and-answer format that also provides resources on this topic
  • The three core components of placement stability (individualized assessment and placement services; recruitment, assessment, selection, and support of caregivers; and child welfare policies and practices)
