On February 8, 2021, representatives from the University of Maryland’s School of Social Work shared lessons learned in developing and implementing the Enhanced-Youth Transition Planning (E-YTP) model. The E-YTP model is an individualized, youth-driven, strengths-based, and team-based transition-planning process for older youth (ages 14–21) in foster care. It was developed for rural settings. For more details about the project and intervention, see the project summary.

The Children’s Bureau funded the YARH multiphase grant program to build the evidence base on what works to prevent homelessness among youth and young adults who have been involved with the child welfare system.
