Specifications include, but are not limited to:The purpose of this solicitation is to procure stand-alone home-based services, stand-alone placement-based services, and integrated home-based and placement-based services that improve long term outcomes for children and families in DCYF care. The Department seeks to shift its programming towards a System of Care that strengthens families to safely maintain children in their own homes, prioritizes kin and foster family placements for children who must be removed from their families, utilizes group placement only when necessary for short-term treatment, and intensely supports reunification, guardianship, and adoption. The Department is seeking to build upon its strengths and improve performance in the following priority areas: Strengthening families to increase proportion of children who can be safely maintained in their own homes: Removing children from their homes is traumatizing to the child, parents, and other family members involved. Rhode Island removes children from their homes at a rate far above the national average (approximately 6 per 1,000 children under age 18 entering the foster care system, compared to national average of 3 per 1,000 children in 2013).1 These decisions are complex, involving the authority of the courts, caseworkers, parents, attorneys, and other invested actors. Critical to preventing removals is having services in place with a demonstrated ability to prevent repeat abuse, neglect, and other indicators leading to removals
