Emergency Placement Foster Care
Family Care for Children & Youth provides emergency foster care placement services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If a child immediately needs a safe place to stay, FCCY can provide short-term foster care placement with a family for up to 30 days. During this time period, appropriate plans for the child’s future living arrangements will be made by all involved parties, including the child, the county caseworker, the child’s biological/legal family, the FCCY case manager, and the foster family. In many situations, it is suggested that the child be moved from emergency placement and into our Family Based Services program.
