Keeping Siblings Together

A sibling is one of the only persons in an individual’s life who has a shared life experience with having the same parent(s), a similar background or upbringing, and home environment. Because of this shared life experience, it is so important to try to keep siblings together when a family intersects with the child welfare system.

Keeping siblings together in foster care helps to promote security, adjustment, and is tied to higher rates of reunification with primary family, better school performance and overall better mental wellbeing compared to children who live separately from their siblings in care.

Cadence is committed to keeping siblings together to continue to support the development of youth involved in foster care. Some ways in which Cadence helps to promote sibling placements are:
