Child Profile

A Child Profile is a comprehensive summary of the child’s life history, current functioning and special needs. It can be referred for all children and youth in the custody of a county and youth agency and in out-of-home care, regardless of their permanency goal, and assists in choosing a resource family. SWAN’s Child Profile assists in identifying connections and supports for a child by reviewing past and existing relationships. For older youth, the profile summarizes the sequence of their time in out-of-home care.
