Advocating For Siblings

Fighting for foster youth to live with their siblings has never been more important. The Continuum of Care Reform and Resource Family Approval laws passed in 2017 have increased the requirements for relatives to clear as placement options at the very beginning of the case, which has resulted in delay for those placements being quickly accessible options for children. Simultaneously, new laws have added pressure on social workers to have children moved out of temporary shelter care facilities and into foster care as quickly as possible. In San Diego, social workers are expected to move children out of Polinsky (our temporary shelter for foster youth) and into a home within a maximum of 10 day
