Unregulated Custody Transfer/Re-Homing of Adopted Children: Tip Sheet for Child Protection & Child Welfare Professionals The Capacity Building Center for States developed a Tip Sheet for child protection and child welfare professionals on the Unregulated Custody Transfer/Re-homing of Adopted Children. The Capacity Building Center supports States and territories in building the capacity to develop, implement, and sustain a continuum of adoption preservation and support services that result in enhanced family stability, permanency, and well-being.
Continuum Framework This document lays out the continuum of services that form the framework of the Quality Improvement Center for Adoption and Guardianship Support and Preservation (QIC-AG). The continuum is a comprehensive array of pre- and post-permanency services provided from the point a child enters the public child welfare system, through finalization of an adoption or guardianship, and continuing throughout post-permanence after an adoption or guardianship is finalized.
