Transitioning Youth to Families

Going Home Again: Transitioning Youth to Families After Group Care Placement
This paper presents results from the transitioning youth to families intervention, which aimed to promote family care for youth served in group care programs in the child welfare system. The intervention was conducted in two counties in a Mid-Atlantic state. The effort encompassed administrative case review and family involvement meetings. It assessed the effect of the intervention in promoting placement in family settings within 12 months. Other effects of the intervention were also explored, resulting in themes that furthered the understanding of the value of the intervention especially in the areas of planning for the transition, improving youth insight about placement options, and the importance of family involvement.
