Focusing on a variety of education, health and youth development issues of importance to children and families in Pennsylvania.

Eliminating APPLA in PA

Pennsylvania has made laudable progress to strengthen permanency efforts for foster children and youth in recent years, but more needs to be done to eliminate the least desirable court-ordered goal available - known as Another Planned Permanent Living Arrangement, or APPLA.

Too often, APPLA translates into long-term foster care instead of a permanent home for children and youth in foster care. Other options - like placement with relatives, family reunification, legal guardianship or adoption - typically result in better outcomes for foster youth.

The good news is there are targeted practices and policies Pennsylvania can implement to deter, and ultimately eliminate, the use of APPLA. We take a look at some of these options in our latest report, Eliminating APPLA for All Children.

If we work together, Pennsylvania can ensure every child in foster care eventually finds a permanent home. Our children and youth in foster care deserve nothing less.
