Continuum of Care Reform including CANS

The Continuum of Care Reform (CCR) draws together existing and new reforms to California’s child welfare services program. It is designed from an understanding that children who must live apart from their biological parents do best when they are cared for in committed, nurturing family homes. Also known as AB 403, CCR provides the statutory and policy framework to ensure that services and supports for the children or youth and their families are tailored toward the ultimate goal of maintaining a stable permanent family.
