We believe the best way to have success in a youth's life is to have supportive adults in their life. That is why we developed the Permanency Pact.
What is a Permanency Pact? A pledge by a supportive adult to provide specific supports to a young person in foster care with a goal of establishing a lifelong, kin-like relationship.
A Permanency Pact provides:
- Structure and a safety net for the youth
- A defined and verbalized commitment by both parties to a long term supportive relationship
- Clarity regarding the expectations of the relationship
This is a free tool designed to encourage life-long, kin-like connections between a young person from foster care and a supportive adult.
