The County of Orange uses licensed private Foster Family Agencies (FFAs) for the placement of children who require more intensive care. Effective January 1, 2017, FFAs were required to submit program statements to the State of California. These program statements must address the following:
- Resource Family program implementation plan
- Strategies for the FFA to comply with the Resource Family Approval standards and requirements
The County is required to review each FFA’s program statement and issue a letter of support for consideration by the State in order for the FFA to continue its services.
