Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Child Care Act of 1969. Provides that "foster family home" means a facility for child care in residences of families who receive no more than 6 (rather than 8) children unrelated to them, unless all the children are of common parentage, or residences of relatives who receive no more than 6 related children placed by the Department of Children and Family Services, unless the children are of common parentage, for the purpose of providing family care and training for the children on a full-time basis, except the Director of Children and Family Services, pursuant to Department regulations, may waive the numerical limitation of foster children who may be cared for in a foster family home for any of the following reasons to allow: (1) a parenting youth in foster care to remain with the child of the parenting youth; (2) siblings to remain together; (3) a child with an established meaningful relationship with the family to remain with the family; or (4) a family with special training or skills to provide care to a child who has a severe disability. Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that within 35 days after placing a child in its care in a qualified residential treatment program, as defined by the federal Social Security Act, the Department shall file a written report with the court and send copies of the report to all parties. Provides that within 20 days of the filing of the report, the court shall hold a hearing to consider the Department's report and determine whether placement of the child in a qualified residential treatment program provides the most effective and appropriate level of care for the child in the least restrictive environment and if the placement is consistent with the short-term and long-term goals for the child, as specified in the permanency plan for the child. Makes other changes. Effective October 1, 2019.
