CASA Guide to Kin-First Culture
Emergency RFA (eRFA):
Foster Family Agency (FFA):
Polinsky Children's Center (PCC) is a 10-day temporary shelter care facility for children who cannot remain with their family of origin dur to abuse/neglect and for children experiencing a change of placement.
Visiting Youth: When visiting a youth detained at PCC, the CASA needs to bring their Court order and a picture ID. If the clerical staff have concerns, the CASA should ask that they reach out to the duty SW at PCC to confirm they are able to visit. That person (who is physically at PCC) can then go into their electronic system (which the clerical staff do not have access to) to verify that the CASA is appointed.
East Mesa Juvenile Detention Facility (EMJDF): For more information on visiting youth detained at EMJDF, please visit the Juvenile Justice pager and review the guide on "Working with Crossover Youth."
The STRTP, formerly licensed group home (LGH), is intended for youth whose behavioral and therapeutic needs are not able to be met in a home-based family setting, even with the provision of supportive services, and who require the level of supervision and clinical interventions provided by the STRTP facility.
The STRTP is one of the highest level of placements available for children and youth in care.
