Notes of Decisions

   Placement in Unapproved Homes

   In ordering a disposition under 42 Pa.C.S. §  6351 (relating to disposition of dependent child), the court does have the authority to order the county institution district to place children in homes not yet approved, even though the provisions of subsection (b) and §  3130.39 (relating to services and facilities which may be used) prohibits the county institution district from doing so on its own initiative and the Superior Court judgment was reversed. In re Lowry, 484 A.2d 383 (Pa. 1984).

   The courts cannot order a County Children and Youth Services agency to supervise the placement of a dependent child in a foster home that had not been inspected and approved by a foster family care agency, under this section. In re Lowry, 464 A.2d 333 (Pa. Super. 1983).
