      D.C. family services agency to disband adoption program

      WASHINGTON (AP) - The District Child and Family Services Agency is disbanding a program that helps move children from foster care to adoption, guardianship or reunification with their families.

      The Washington Post reports that it obtained a memo from agency officials to employees and service providers that says two positions will be eliminated.

      The duties of the Out-of-Home and Permanence Administration will fall to other caseworkers in the agency. Mindy Good, a spokeswoman for the agency, says caseworkers are able to handle the paperwork needed to move children out of foster care.
