A new brief has been published which describes the tools and processes that Phase 2 of the Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH-2) grantees have implemented to identify and screen youth and young adults who may be eligible to participate in their comprehensive service models.
A primary goal of the YARH Phase II grant was screening for risk and protective factors to determine if youth who are aging out of foster care are at an increased risk for homelessness. This brief released by the Children’s Bureau and OPRE highlights the work of the YARH grantees, including CPR’s work for Colorado’s Pathways to Success model intervention. We are happy to report that the success of the tool for identifying youth has led to its use by service providers and agencies across the state.
This brief is part of a series that shares strategies used by organizations that serve youth and young adults who have been involved in the child welfare system and are at risk of homelessness. Collecting and sharing these lessons with organizations that have similar missions is one step in developing evidence on how to meet the needs of this population.
