QIC-AG Permanency Continuum Framework: PREPARATION

Once it is determined that reunification is not an option, specific activities must take place to identify appropriate permanency resources and to prepare the children and the families for adoption or guardianship. This interval focuses on the activities that help to identify the resources that will help prepare children and families to make a successful transition from foster care to adoption or guardianship.

Capacity building elements occur in both pre- and post-permanency areas on the continuum. The QIC-AG will work with sites in the areas identified as capacity building (stage setting, preparation, and maintenance), to provide an array of supports and services. Staff from the QIC-AG will provide assistance with identifying promising and evidence-informed practices in these areas. However, the capacity building areas will not be the focus of the implementation or the evaluation.
