For gathering the Outcome Measures for VOCA reporting, last quarter I created a web form with the questions and post it on our foster parent Facebook page. I had an amazing return and it save us a lot of staff time in not having to make so many calls. I found that our foster parents were more honest as well when they could fill out the form instead of taking on the phone or face to face with a staff member. No kids names, foster parents can use initials instead of full name. Gotta keep that confidentiality up!
From Mary Collard:
I’m still stuck on “our foster parents’ Facebook page”. That’s a thing? I am promising my first born to them just to beg for a blind copy of an email group of fosters so I can send them a newsletter because they won’t read the one DHS sends IF they send one. I’d. LOVE for my managers and me to have the ability to have more contact with the Fosters. They need that and so do we! Thanks for this leverage that I am going to bring up at a meeting next week. Love it!
