Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The guidance presented in the prevention chapter is a reflection of the concept that prevention services are an integral part of the continuum of all child welfare services. Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) will continue to enhance prevention services and programs to support the Local Department of Social Services (LDSS) to enhance the delivery of In-Home services for children and families, particularly those at risk of entering foster care. The significant changes in section one include public education and awareness activities that LDSS offers and examples of national community outreach, education, and awareness programs. In addition, it includes the concept of cultural humility as central to and an extension of culturally competent practice. The changes in section two provide the alignment of our CPS Ongoing Work, previous Prevention efforts, and Family First in the framework for In-Home services and foster care prevention throughout the casework process, to include guidance for initial assessment, service planning, reassessment, and decision-making in three (3) child safety scenarios.
