Spotlight on National Foster Care Month As of July 2012, there were 500,540
children and youth in foster care, many of whom were between the ages of
12 and 17. Youth who exit foster care without permanent families or
connections are at risk for myriad negative outcomes. The theme for the
2013 National Foster Care Month is Supporting Youth in Transition. This
month, CBX highlights a higher education program for transitioning
youth, a tool for evaluating youth connectedness, and other information
about foster care.
Training and Technical Assistance Network Updates Learn about the QIC-EC's Project DULCE,
the use of customer service practices to increase the retention and
recruitment of foster parents, adoptive parents, and kin, and other
updates from CB's T&TA Network.
Child Welfare News CBX points to research about relationship
education programs for youth in foster care, the health and social
consequences of adverse childhood experiences, and other news from the
child welfare field.
