EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION

Family Finding Openings

Reports to: Program Management Analyst
Location: Rolla, MO

Position Summary:
30 Days to Family® is a short term intervention to expand efforts to find safe, appropriate relative supports for children entering foster care. One goal of the program is to assist in meeting the 2008 Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act’s 30-day standard of notifying a child’s adult relatives of their option to participate in the care and placement of the child. The initial search is for non-offending parents and grandparents, but the goal is that at least 80 additional relatives will be identified and explored. Because foster care placements can be fragile, the goal is to identify multiple relatives or kin as potential placement providers. Maternal and paternal relatives are explored with equal interest. In all cases, every effort is made to keep siblings together, maintain children in their school of origin, and preserve the child’s important relationships with friends and supportive adults. Once the placement provider is identified, family support interventions provided include, assessment of child and family needs, identification of family and community resources, assistance in eliminating barriers to placement with relatives, and creating a network of support services that are documented in a Roadmap to Family.

The 30 Days to Family® Supervisor will develop and implement key policy and procedures for successful replication of the 30 Days to Family® Program. In addition to overseeing the program, the 30 Days to Family® Supervisor will directly supervise 30 Days to Family® Specialists.

  • Accompany 30 Days to Family® Specialist to initial meetings and hearings
  • Assist the 30 Days to Family® Specialist with conducting the family finding search process, engagement of relatives, identifying family supports, overcoming barriers, and preparing the family for placement

The following functions apply to the 30 Days to Family® Specialist position as well, but must be accomplished by the Supervisor as needed on an ongoing basis
  • Assist the case manager and court officials with meeting the Fostering Connections to Success Act, applicable local statutes, and agency policy in regards to relative/kin notification and placement
