7000 Transferring a Child from One Foster Home to Another

24 Hour Residential Child Care Requirements Guide December 2016

Before moving a child from one foster home to another foster home the provider must obtain written approval from the CPS caseworker.

In an emergency, and if prior approval cannot be obtained, the provider must notify CPS of the move within 24 hours. CPS will respond to requests for approval within ten calendar days of receiving a proper request.

If the provider has developed forms for transferring children that the CPS caseworker needs to sign, the forms must be reviewed by CPS. The forms may only be used after the provider has received written approval from the residential contract manager indicating CPS legal approval.
