Concurrent caregivers are foster parents and prospective adoptive parents at the same time. Concurrent caregivers provide love, and ongoing care to children who are not able to live with their birth families. These are children whom the court may legally free for adoption.
Children in this program are foster children at the time of placement. Concurrent caregivers will be asked to cooperate with the reunification plan which may include visits between the birthpparents and the child. These may take place either in or out of the home. If reunification with the birth family does not occur, concurrent caregivers may then pursue adoption.
