Step Up Coaliton Resource Family Approval Toolkit

Featured Content

The Alliance for Children’s Rights, the Step Up Coalition, and a wide range of state and local partners has released a Resource Family Approval Toolkit. The toolkit is designed to help walk caregivers through the newly implemented Resource Family Approval process.

The toolkit is intended to provide caregivers access to easy-to-understand information, sample forms, and other resources to guide them through the approval process. The toolkit includes a narrative explaining RFA step by step, as well as an appendix full of supplemental tools and other materials referenced in the narrative. It is not meant to be comprehensive; each county in California may have it’s own supplemental forms and requirements, and all caregivers are encouraged to consult with their social worker and local advocacy organizations for additional guidance.

Visit the Step Up Coalition website to download the toolkit. Questions? Contact Adina Kuncz,
