When the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) detains children for reasons of child safety, Relative/NREFM caregivers are often first secured as resource families for these children.
Relative Resource Families provide substitute care for children placed away from their parents. By choosing to be a Relative Resource Parent, you are providing a temporary, safe, stable and loving home for children or youth. They remain in your home until they can safely reunite with their birth parents or an alternative permanent plan is made for the child. If reunification is not successful, then you as a relative resource parent are approved and ready to adopt that child or youth.
