Washington County Citizen Review Panel All-Family Foster Care Committee 2007 Annual Report
Submitted by the Following Panel Members: Bob Benson, Dani Horan, Sue Lewis, Gail Peavey.
Committee’s Goals: To determine the feasibility of providing All-Family Foster Care as an option through Washington County Community Services (WCCS).
Activities and Conclusions: Hoping to positively contribute to the ever changing landscape of Social Services provided here in Minnesota, our committee is interested in the concept of All-Family Foster care.
Current Status of the Committee: This committee is currently in the fact finding stage and information has proven to be quite limited. Having queried the National Citizen’s Review Panel Listserv, many of the responses stated that while they have not encountered this situation in their area they were quite interested in hearing more.
Recommendations: As we are still looking for data, this committee has no recommendations at this time. We hope to have more solid findings and to form a recommendation in 2008.
