In 2008, Ohio's Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services (CCDCFS) received discretionary grant funds from the Children's Bureau's Diligent Recruitment of Families for Children in Foster Care System grant cluster. The funds were used to implement Partners for Forever Families, a partnership between CCDCFS and other agencies and organizations throughout the county that have committed resources to help identify and facilitate connections between prospective resource families and children in foster care. This report highlights the project's work as discussed during a site visit on June 3, 2013, at the Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services (CCDCFS) offices in Cleveland, OH.
