Welcome to Promoting Safe and Stable Families (PSSF)

Overview
Georgia's Promoting Safe and Stable Families Program provides federal child welfare funding, training and technical assistance to help build state and community capacity to meet the needs of families at risk of child welfare intervention and families in crisis. PSSF targets four types of families touched by the child welfare system: families at risk and in need of support; families in crisis where efforts are being made to preserve the family through intensive services; families where a child has been placed in foster care and the best interest of the child is to be reunified; and families in need of adoption or post permanency services.

PSSF Program Goals and Objectives FY 2010 - 2014
The PSSF program goals and objectives reflect an ongoing commitment to ensuring that families, communities and organizations have access to the highest quality services and resources needed to help children and youth grow into healthy, thriving and contributing members of our society.

Goal: To achieve better outcomes for children and families who encounter the child welfare system by recruiting, training and retaining a coordinated network of community-based, family centered, outcomes-driven organizations, whose mission is to support and stabilize children, youth and families.

Objectives:
  • Prevent abuse and neglect through supportive family services
  • Prevent the unnecessary separation of children from their families through intensive preservation services.
  • Minimize the length of time children remain in foster care through safe and expedient reunification
  • Promote permanent placements and support life-long family connections for children and youth through adoption promotion and post permanency support services.
Strategic Investment of Resources
Title IV-B, Subpart 2, (PSSF) resources are strategically invested to enhance the state capacity of DFCS to identify and meet the needs of families at the community level and to expand state-funded child protection and placement service programs.

Federal PSSF resources are allocated in the following percentages:

These federal allocations are further leveraged with matching funds contributed at the local level.
