Relational permanence is defined as youth having lifelong connections to caring adults,including at least one adult who will provide a permanent,parent-like connection for that youth. The Youth Connections Scale has been developed to help child welfare agencies and organizations better work with youth in strengthening and building a supportive safety net for all youth in foster care.
