Permanency for a child means a safe, stable and secure home and family, love, unconditional commitment, and lifelong support in the context of reunification, adoption, or legal guardianship, where possible. Every youth exiting foster care should have at a minimum a permanent connection with one caring, committed adult who will provide them with guidance and support as they make their way into adulthood. Whatever the permanency arrangement, youth must have the opportunity to maintain contact, as appropriate, with people who are most important to them, especially siblings.
