Seeking Foster Children Benefits/Resources
I will soon be a fost-adopt parent to a 2+ year old. As I prepare for her to come live with me I am wanting to identify all the benefits/resources that are available to her as a foster child in Alameda County and CA as well as federally. From asking around (including my assigned worker) there is no central place to identify these resources. I live in Alameda County. I understand that my foster daughter will have Medi-Cal and WIC and that I will be receiving a stipend to support her needs through the FFA I work with. I know that A Home Within is a good resource for psychotherapy. I just wanted to know if there are any additional resources that I can access on her behalf to support her transition and development. I will also be looking for resources to support my ability to optimally support her in this transition and beyond. My FFA has a support group and I am looking into resources through PACT as well.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
