Specialized Child Care– Permanency Program (SCCCPP)
SCCCPP provides intensive services to child(ren) who have been in out-of-home placement for more than six (6) months. The goal of SCCPP is to finalize permanent living arrangements for children in a safe and stable home when reunification is not the primary case plan goal. Permanent arrangements may include guardianship, adoption, and/or customary adoption.
- SCCCPP shall be initiated when a referral/intake is received from the appropriate Case Management Specialist
- The child(ren) being referred are dependent child(ren) and have an active case with DFS
- DFS shall accept referrals/intakes for each potential legal guardian or adoptive parent who is interested in becoming a permanent legal caretaker for the children. SCCCPP may make referrals to the DFS Foster Care program for foster or kinship home licensing.
