Abstract

This collaborative report from the National Wraparound Initiative and the Pathways Research and Training Center at Portland State looks at how providers modify the Wraparound approach when working with older youth and young adults. The authors conducted a qualitative analysis by conducting interviews with facilitators, peer support providers, and program managers in eight states. This report presents a summary of these interviews and offers suggestions for training and technical assistance for Wraparound programs working with older youth and adults based on these findings.

Social and Emotional Learning and Traditionally Underserved Populations

Social and Emotional Learning and Traditionally Underserved Populations
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This brief from the American Youth Policy Forum focuses on social and emotional learning (SEL) programs for three traditionally underserved groups: students with disabilities, English language learners, and youth involved in the juvenile justice system.  The risk factors and consequences experienced by system-involved youth often create barriers to their social and emotional development. In addition to reviewing current research and practice related to SEL for these three student populations, the author explores possible applications of SEL programs to better prepare these students for success in school and life.

Rapid Re-Housing Handbook Version 1.0: A Resource Guide for Rapid Re-Housing Programs
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This guide from Point Source Youth provides information about how to implement, evaluate, and refine rapid re-housing (RRH) programs for youth. The handbook defines the RRH approach as a youth-centered solution that helps young people obtain a lease in their name and provides wraparound services that support them as they work to maintain stable housing. It covers the core components of RRH, the justification for implementing RRH, and information about the joint transitional housing to rapid re-housing (TH-RRH) component HUD introduced in 2017.

In this brief, the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF) presents three case studies of how states are dealing with accountability under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) among alternative education settings. These case studies demonstrate the different approaches developed in three states: Georgia, Louisiana, and Wyoming.

Effectively Integrating the CANS into the Wraparound Process

Effectively Integrating the CANS into the Wraparound Process
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This guide is intended to support states, systems, and organizations in their efforts to integrate the Wraparound care coordination process with the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) decision-making measurement tool. The National Wraparound Initiative (NWI) and the National Wraparound Implementation Center developed this document with Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, which is the organizational home of the CANS. NWI defines Wraparound as a service delivery strategy that provides comprehensive, holistic, youth and family-driven ways of responding when children and youth experience serious mental health or behavioral challenges. This guide describes how to best use the CANS within the four phases of the Wraparound process: engagement phase, planning phase, implementation phase, and the transition phase.

A Youth Homelessness System Assessment for New York City

A Youth Homelessness System Assessment for New York City
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This report from Chapin Hall presents a rapid, mixed-methods assessment of the system of services and supports available to youth experiencing homelessness in New York City. The assessment team found that significant gaps remain in prevention, affordable housing options, and coordination of youth services despite the city’s efforts to expand some services and prioritize youth homelessness. Based on these findings, Chapin Hall has recommended that the city establish a single office for an interagency response to youth homelessness with shared processes and tools for coordinated entry and support for youth, including affordable housing and career development opportunities.
