This system was developed in 2007 for the members of
the California Alliance of Child and Family Services (CACFS).
The purpose has been to improve access to vacancies in
foster family agencies, group homes and other
facilities for County and State placement social
workers and probation officers, thereby reducing the
time that children and youth have to wait for an
appropriate home. Access has now been expanded to
include listings by any licensed residential program
that wishes to announce its openings. Vacancies of
CACFS member agencies that are
accredited by the Alliance are so indicated on
their vacancy pages.
California Alliance of Child and Family Services
is a statewide association of more than 130 private
nonprofit child and family serving agencies committed
to providing the highest quality services in the most
caring and effective fashion. To learn more, and to
consider membership, please
visit the site.
The system was designed and is operated by
Placenet.net LLC and Graham Wright M.Phil., M.S.W.,
who continues a lifelong career in California child
welfare spanning County DSS line and management
experience, founding directorship of a nonprofit
placement agency, CDSS Stakeholder involvement, and
program design. He is the creator, designer and
operator of California's adoption matching system at
California Kids Connection, and assists several
agencies with their web site projects.
Vacancy listings are free for Alliance member
agencies. Other licensed agencies pay just $10 per
month for each of their openings. There is no cost at
all for County and State placement staff.
