WASHINGTON - 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.
