Family First Prevention Services ActA fantastic editorial in The Washington Post by Senators Orrin G. Hatch, Ron Wyden, Kevin Brady and Sander M. Levin on the bipartisan, bicameral Family First Prevention Services Act.

“Foster care should be limited, temporary and high-quality. Under this bill, instead of having a system that just pays for foster care, states would receive federal support to strengthen families through substance abuse treatment, mental-health services and in-home parenting programs — to allow parents or other relatives to get the help they need to safely care for their kids.”

Keep in mind that the Family First Prevention Services Act will apply to all families, including adoptive families that may be struggling post adoption. In essence it will provide some funding for post adoption services for those adoptive families that are at risk.
