A Best Practice Guide to Partnering with Resource Families

In the fall of 2007, the North Carolina Division of Social Services launched a resource parent recruitment and retention project based on the strategies recommended by best practice and research.

This project concentrates on the application of broad but concrete steps that individual agencies can take to meet their specific needs, and it builds on the success of the North Carolina’s Multiple Response System and reinforces the strengths of our state’s child welfare system.

Because recruiting and retaining resource families is fundamentally a community responsibility, counties or clusters of counties are encouraged to use existing interagency committees, collaboratives, and other groups to lead this effort on the local level.
