A permanent plan for a child could consist of adoption, legal guardianship, or a Planned Permanent Living Arrangement (PPLA). A child in the PPLA status continues to have their situation evaluated for permanency with one of the permanent options sometimes includes the possible future return to the parents if and when the child can be safe in the parents home. CWS Family Reunification (FR) Family Reunification (FR) Family Reunification Services (FR) in Tulare County provides time-limited services to families whose children cannot remain safely in the home and have been placed by the Juvenile Court in foster care.
