Abstract

The Children’s Bureau, within the Administration for Children and Families, funded a multi-phase grant program to build the evidence base on what works to prevent homelessness among youth and young adults. This initiative is called the Youth At-Risk of Homelessness (YARH). This issue brief looks at methods YARH grantees used to engage youth in the development of new comprehensive service models intended to reduce homelessness among youth who are in or formerly in foster care. The brief provides samples of YARH grantees activities. (abstract modified)

Abstract

This report looks at the relationship between community trauma and negative health and wellness outcomes at both individual and community levels, especially in areas that experience higher rates of violence. It outlines strategies to address and prevent community trauma and increase resilience by enlisting the help of those with lived experience in neighborhoods with high rates of violence. The report discusses how young people are affected by community trauma and ways to help them overcome these barriers and improve their outcomes.
