I have requested this information from Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, and will revert when I have been provided with the information.

It should be noted that children being cared for by a private foster care company remain in the care of Tusla at all times and have a Tusla allocated social worker. The Tusla Foster Care Committee approves all applications by the private company for families to be eligible to foster.
