About this resource
Resource Family Retention Plan
The Department of Children and Families believe that all foster, adoptive and kinship families are a cherished resource and invaluable to the work we do in serving children and families. All resource families play a unique role in the child welfare system as they are both internal and external customers. Resource families are internal customers to be acknowledged and respected as essential members of the professional team and are also external customers to be sought out, supported, valued and retained by all DCF staff.
