Organized by DCBA's Juvenile Court Committee With the mandated stay-at-home orders implemented from March 2020, the community and the world encouraged social distancing and isolation in the interest of protecting their loved ones, friends, and family. However, children removed from their homes and placed in foster care due to allegations of abuse, abandonment, or neglect were now restricted from in-person visitation with their family, indefinitely. Social service agencies quickly moved to a model of virtual visitation through platforms such as FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger, often facilitated by foster parents and/or temporary relative custodians. A year later, we seek to examine and discuss the questions that have arisen about the effectiveness of virtual contact and how to balance the need to ensure the safety of the child and the caregiver while also allowing the biological parents to maintain their bond with their children.
