AI - BOND Program

Thursday, March 10, 2022

In order to increase quality support and respite services for resource families (traditional and kinship), and to further secure the permanency, well-being, and safety of children, the Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA) has implemented the Bridge, Organize, Nurture, and Develop (BOND) model for CFSA resource parents. Under this model, a “squad” is formed out of a group of 12–15 resource parents and one BOND lead family. The lead family’s role is to provide peer support to assigned resources families, coordinate special activities, and provide or assist with coordinated respite care.
