SPOA for Children and Families is a process to identify those children with the risk of placement in out-of-home settings and to connect with community based strategies to support children and families. The purposes of the SPOA are: Conduct screenings for referred children; develop and monitor strategies to manage children involved in the services using an individualized, strength-based approach; coordinate decisions about individualized care planning for children at risk; and support communities to manage access to intensive services.
