Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) has identified the need to provide community-based care services in a proposed community that includes support services to all children and families that support safety, permanency, and well-being of children in its legal conservatorship. DFPS sees a service delivery model that fully engages communities in serving children, youth, and families provided through a performance-based Single Source Continuum Contract (SSCC) as the approach that can most effectively meet this need in a manner that achieves improved outcomes for children in its conservatorship. The SSCC provider must ensure the full continuum of substitute care (foster and kinship care), purchased services, case management and reunification services for children and youth in DFPS legal conservatorship from the designated geographic proposed community, those placed in the proposed community through the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC), and through interregional agreements.
