The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services is soliciting proposals to provide Family Foster Care Services in Allegheny County.
The Department is seeking one or more Family Foster Care Programs for young people to assist in two key aspects:
1) Increase the availability of qualified foster families for young people through recruiting, licensing, training and supporting foster families and maintaining an active roster of foster parents.
2) Work substantively with young people, families of origin and/or foster families to provide comprehensive and wrap-around services and supports.
DHS intends to identify organizations with the capacity to offer family-based foster placements for young people, their siblings, and their children. The focus will be on organizations with the capacity to offer family-based foster care placements for approximately 200 young people, 80 of their siblings, and 10 of their children–a total of 290 children and young people.
