The Bureau for Children and Families released The Study of Kinship Care Families October 2019 conducted by Second Chance, Inc through a grant from Casey Family Programs. The purpose of the study was to gain recommendations for improving services provided for kinship/relative foster care families. The study fulfills the requirements of House Bill 2010 (WV Code §49-2-111b) and addresses delays in foster care certification, payment options for relatives/kin and specific supports needed to best meet the needs of relative/kinship families involved with DHHR.
Please find below the FAQ document for transitioning foster care youth to managed care. This document will continue to be updated as new questions are posed and addressed.
