The Department of Children and Families promotes the connections of relatives to children placed in foster care. We appreciate family and want to ensure they are supported in their important role by child welfare agencies.
Keeping family connections benefits children by creating stability, improving reunification and preserving the cultural connections for children in foster care.
In Wisconsin, child welfare agencies are licensing qualified relative caregivers as foster parents. Recent legal changes have made foster care licensing requirements more flexible for relatives.
