Foster care placements with Child Placing Agencies (CPAs) and Child Caring Institutions (CCIs) generally account for over 45% of all DFCS placements. The process of referring children and youth to these providers can often be an overwhelming task considering that there are over 170 CCI sites and more than 60 different CPAs all with varying differences in their referral and administrative processes. To simplify and standardize the referral process, the common referral form or RBWO MATCH Screening Summary (RBWO MSS) has been developed.

Once fully implemented, the RBWO MSS will be the single process used by all CCIs and CPAs as the initial referral tool for potential placement matches. Due to contractual requirements, providers may continue to use other referral forms until May 1, 2014. Thereafter use of the RBWO MSS will be a requirement and no other referral forms will be used.

RBWO MATCH Screening Summary (RBWO MSS) Form - the RBWO MSS form is used to make referrals to RBWO providers. Please complete the form thoroughly and completely.

Selecting the best placement with the highest performing RBWO provider is now possible with the MATCH! E-Tool.
The MATCH! E-Tool is a placement search tool that pulls information in real-time from provider's data in GA+SCORE. It was developed to support DFCS case managers in finding RBWO placements. The MATCH! E-Tool does the following:
  • Allows for multiple, flexible search options;
  • Returns results using real-time capacity information on CCIs and CPA foster homes;
  • Sorts by the provider's current Performance Based Placement quarterly grade.
With the MATCH! E-Tool, it's no longer necessary to call providers to see if they have space available. MATCH! E-Tool returns results for placement matches of providers who actually have space available, in order of their Performance Based Placement grade.

Important Note: MATCH! E-Tool results provide the last name of CPA caregivers who meet your search criteria. This in no way implies that DFCS Case Managers are authorized to make direct placements with CPA foster parents. Instead, having the foster parent's name simply gives DFCS Case managers more information to discuss with the CPA regarding potential matches.
