Child and Family Team Meetings Help Ensure Success

It takes a village, as the saying goes…or a group of impassioned people, as Trinity Youth Services likes to put it.

Changes for Resource Families: Level of Care Rate Protocol

One thing in life we can be certain of is change. Trinity Youth Services constantly adjusts to changes in policy and adapts to the needs of families served. The State of California has implemented a new resource family compensation system for caring for foster youth. It is called the Level of Care (LOC) Rate Protocol and the adjustment departs from the age-based rate, to a strengths-based approach which supports a rate for caregivers. LOC is a State of California legislative…

National Adoption Month Focuses on Teens in Need

As of today, 112,000 children across the country are waiting to be adopted by permanent families. These children remain loved and cared for by their foster families, but never lose hope of becoming part of an adoptive family. For some children, this may take years. For others, this day may never come. Over twenty years ago the Children’s Bureau designated November National Adoption Month to raise awareness of the need for permanent families for children in foster care. 2017’s campaign,…
