The Permanency Roundtable Project began in the fall of 2008. It was a collaboration of the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS)/ Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), Casey Family Programs and Care Solutions, Inc.
The project focused primarily on children under a federal consent decree in Fulton and DeKalb counties. The purposes of the permanency roundtable consultations were:
- To develop a plan for each child to achieve permanency
- To stimulate thinking and learning about pathways to permanency for these and other children in foster care
- To identify and address barriers to permanency through creative thinking, professional development, policy change, resource development, and the engagement of system partners
