    Description

    The Foster Family Consultant (FFC) is our unique version of the case management role within a child placing agency. FFCs work closely with DFCS and the juvenile court system to manage children's deprivation cases toward permanency. They participate in matching foster children with foster families during the placement process. They ensure each child's safety, permanency, and well-being while in foster care through home visits and frequent involvement with the child, foster family, and birth family. FFCs support birth family reunification efforts through birth parent visitations and intentional birth parent support. FFCs promote foster placement stability through foster parent coaching, 24/7 support, service coordination, spiritual guidance, treatment planning, and crisis intervention. FFCs advocate for each child's best interest by attending all court hearings, panel reviews, family team meetings, educational meetings, and other meetings related to child's case.
