Children are placed in DHS custody by the juvenile court as a result of abuse or neglect. Many individuals are involved in a team effort to reunite children with their families, or when this is determined not to be in the best interest of children, to establish another permanent home for them. As a resource parent, you are a vital member of the team, and the information you have regarding the children placed in your home is very important to a successful outcome.
