Focus On Florida Foster Care Mode

The Florida Department of Children and Families’ electronic system used for placing foster children across state lines is being used as the model in a national pilot project. Six states will participate in the pilot program over the next several months. Florida has used the system since 2008. Officials say it significantly decreases the amount of time it takes to place a Florida foster child into a home with relatives or adoptive parents in another state.
The state processes approximately three thousand requests for children to move in and out of state each year.
The database also saves nearly 100 thousand dollars annually in postage and paper.Florida’s foster care program becomes model for nation wide pilot program.
