(This amendment adds language to extend the pilot program for the temporary placements of children for children and families in crisis to the City and County of Roanoke. The program allows a parent or legal custodian of a minor, with the assistance of a private provider to delegate to another person by a properly executed power of attorney any powers regarding care, custody or property of the minor for a temporary placement for a period that is not greater than 90 days, with an option of a one-time 90 day extension. Currently, the program operates in Planning District 11.)
