Foster Parent Law Implementation Plans
The IL Department of Children and Family Services is pleased to post the Foster Parent Law Implementation Plans for the four DCFS administrative regions for calendar year 2014. The Foster Parent Law requires that plans be submitted each year. These plans must describe how the DCFS regions will proceed to honor the 15 rights of foster parents and how they will assist foster parents to achieve their 17 responsibilities that are set out in the Law. Foster parents who wish to obtain a hard copy of the plan for their region may contact their local DCFS office. Other questions may be directed to the DCFS Office of Professional Development, Parent & Caregiver Support at 217/524-2422. Foster parents who are supervised by an agency other than DCFS should contact their agency's local office if they wish to obtain a copy of that agency's plan.
