Abstract

Family and Children’s Services at the Monterey County Department of Social and Employment Services, MCDSES, strive for children’s stability and safety. In Monterey County, there are too many unsuccessful relative and near kin placements. Relatives and near kin caregivers are mandated to complete ROOTS training, Relative Offering Ongoing Ties and Support. ROOTS' curriculum intends to increase caregiver's knowledge to prepare and guide them in becoming a stable home for a child in need. The evaluation of ROOTS, a knowledge based pre/posttest, demonstrated the caregivers' appreciation of support and it gave a broad understanding of the knowledge gained by the caregivers.
