Permanency for Adolescents Committee

Membership: The Honorable Peter Jones - Co-Chair
Dr. Victoria Kelly - Co-Chair
Status: Concluded
Mission: To improve outcomes for adolescents in foster care by developing best practices, policies, procedures and statutes that create lasting connections for adolescents, that exit them in a timely fashion from foster care with appropriate caregivers, that reduces the number of children with a goal of APPLA, that pursues legal strategies for keeping connections, and that has appropriate placements for youth that create stability and success while in foster care. This Subcommittee shall not duplicate the work of the DFS APPLA Workgroup, the Delaware Girls Initiative or any other groups or initiatives assisting adolescents in foster care, but should instead complement or fill gaps which still exist in Delaware's child protection system.
