Sections address the following project components: FSC Project development (the existing problems, FSC Project philosophy, goals, and a program activities chart); program management (sponsoring organization, duties of the Mountain Plains Youth Services Coalition, duties of the Office of Children, Youth and Family Services, relationship to other resources, management tools, and funding); program operations (site selection, population served, FSC parents selection, and FSC parents training); service delivery procedures (referral, initial assessment, initial case planning, FSC referral, FSC placement, FSC planning and evaluation, and implementation of the placement plan); and results and evaluation. Attachments, which make up the bulk of the document, include various forms, charts, and papers which address workshop agendas, evaluation and placement, and recordkeeping. (SBH)
