Symposium on Caregivers


Where will the Children Go - Virtual Symposium on Caregivers for Arizona's Foster Children

Whether you are directly involved in the caregiver decision or are providing a recommendation or are just interested in the process, you will definitely benefit from this event!  Participants will learn about the different caregiver types available for a foster child can and the criteria associated with each one.  Symposium attendees will learn about new federal legislation that effects the placement process and even creates a new caregiver type, the Qualified Residential Treatment Program (QRTP).  Finally, an expert legal panel will break down several placement scenarios to illustrate the decision-making process involved in approving placement with a caregiver.  You will be happy you tagged along for the discussion!
