Community Residential Services for Children

Voluntary Placement Services (VPS)

Voluntary Placement Services (VPS) offer an array of services to a child living in a licensed setting outside of the family home. These services are offered in communities throughout Washington. 

Parents keep custody of their child and work in partnership with the licensed provider to create a shared parenting model that supports their child and his or her individual, unique needs. VPS engages local communities, service providers, DSHS Children’s Administration, and other stakeholders to partner and coordinate services that support the child.
