Family Finding locates biological family members for children in out-of-home care.
One of the most important factors contributing to the safety and permanence of children in out-of-home care is providing them the opportunity to find a meaningful connection and establish lifelong relationships with biological family members.
How it works
Family Finding uses technology developed by US Search, an experienced search agent. The program follows a national model developed by Kevin Campbell, founder of Family Finding, to identify and locate family members using multiple databases. Online searches generate streamlined reports in a matter of minutes.
Once identified, family members create a plan, with the help of the child's welfare worker that helps ensure the safety and permanence of the child.
