Resource Family Assessment

Contra Costa County Children and Family Services believes that all children deserve to have a family and life-long connections.

There is a Relative Assessment Unit that the child’s social worker makes a referral to if you are a relative or a non-related person who has had a previous relationship with the child and are interested in being assessed for possible placement of the child into your home. This involves filling out paperwork provided by the child’s social worker, having a background check, and having a relative assessment social worker come to your home to perform an inspection to ensure there is adequate space and that living space meets specifications.

If you believe you have a relative child in foster care and think you can offer an on-going relationship or family connections, please leave a message at our toll free number 1-888-811-4918.
