Extended Foster Care Placement Options
Start Planning Now…
Emerging adults can transition into one of two placement arrangements depending on the level of independent living skills demonstrated. They can also opt out completely.
Foster Family – ExtendedFoster Care – appropriate for emerging adults who need more time to develop their independent living skills.
Emerging adults who reach agreements with their current foster families to continue living with them, but who need more time to develop their independent living skills, will enter into a Foster Family – Extended Foster Care placement arrangement. Under this arrangement, the foster parents will continue to receive the approved basic rate (plus any other allowable special reimbursements).
Supervised Independent Living – Extended Foster Care – reserved for emerging adults with adequate independent living skills.
Emerging adults who reach agreements with their current foster families to continue living with them, and who have adequate independent living skills, will enter into a “supervised independent living – extended foster care” arrangement. Under this arrangement, the emerging adult can receive the approved basic rate (plus any other allowable special reimbursements).
When considering the placement options above, the emerging adult will complete a Supervised Independent Living Program Readiness Assessment jointly with their social worker.
Financial arrangements for both types of placements as well as agreements for curfew times, chores, and other such household “rules” will vary according to the decisions reached by each household. Children & Family Services social workers will be available to help facilitate conversations, as needed, and agreements will be documented in the Mutual Agreement for Extended Foster Care.
