QPI: Transforming Foster Care to Prioritize Childhoods

Under QPI, foster parents are viewed as key partners with case workers in children’s well-being and security.  They are partners with birth parents working to regain custody, not just providers of beds and meals.  Birth parents are understood with more nuance and compassion than before, not as unfit parents but as human beings who have been victims of poverty, isolation, domestic abuse or addiction who may have made mistakes in judgment.
