Decrease the loss of foster homes resulting from lack of support. Increase the self-reported satisfaction of Louisiana’s foster caregivers. Increase the number of caregivers who provide Quality Parenting. Increase the placements of children with kinship caregivers. Improve placement stability of children in foster care. Promote DCFS’ efforts to improve timely permanency for children in DCFS custody.
