How will I do IL if my permanency goal is not APPLA?

Once you are eligible for IL services you continue to be eligible for IL services no matter where you live or what your permanency goal is.  The goal of the agency should always be to help you find permanency.  Permanency requires a person and a place.  There is no person or place attached to an APPLA goal.  If your goal is adoption, SPLC, placement with a fit and willing relative, you could still live in an IL placement or apartment if your caseworker is in agreement with this or if a judge or hearing officer decides that you can.  Even if you are in your own place, the agency should still be assisting you in finding permanency and permanent connections!!!!  This is so important!!!!  YOU should also be working to build positive relationships with supportive adults.
