Reducing Homelessness Among Youth with Child Welfare Involvement: Phase II Implementation Experiences in a Multi-Phase Grant

To develop an understanding of interventions to prevent homelessness among youth in or formerly in foster care, The Children’s Bureau at the Administration for Children and Families created the Building Capacity to Evaluate Interventions for Youth/Young Adults with Child Welfare Involvement At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH) grant program. This Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation report includes assessment findings of the YAHR grant program. It examines the characteristics of six organizations that formed partnerships with local child welfare agencies to define a comprehensive service model of interventions designed to prevent homelessness in youth who have experienced foster care. The report provides an initial review of how youth participants benefitted from these comprehensive models and how the models changed the services that youth participants received. The report also highlights how these grantees prepared to implement their service models and what factors hindered implementation.
