Resource Family Approval (RFA) Responsibilities
Due to various family circumstances, some children in Mariposa County are in need of foster placements each month. Mariposa Social Services approves homes under contract with the State of California. Foster Homes are important resources to provide support RFA and stability for children who cannot live with their parents or guardians.
The RFA Staff recruits individuals and families who are interested in becoming RFA homes and provides support and recognition to RFA parents. RFA social workers process applications, provide training, help facilitate support groups for foster parents, complete periodic annual on-site visits, and investigate complaints.
