Urban Institute looking for examples of evidence-based family intervention strategies

1 Comment | Posted

The Urban Institute and Child Trends have been contracted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) to identify evidence-based, evidence-informed, and promising practices that exist for family intervention, including strategies that address family conflict to prevent youth from becoming homeless, family reunification strategies for youth who experience homelessness, and other strategies for reconnecting youth to family when a physical reunification may not be appropriate. The review will also examine interventions with a family component that are used in systems outside of Runaway and Homeless Youth programs (e.g., child welfare, mental health, substance abuse, justice) that might be appropriate for youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness

We are currently looking for evaluations of interventions – published or unpublished – that meet the following criteria:

Please send any resources (e.g., evaluations, reports or other write-ups, or other documented information) that you think might be relevant to Ann Schindler at Schindler@childtrends.org . If possible, please provide either an electronic version of the resource or a link where we might be able to access it. We will be accepting resources for inclusion through November 27, 2015. If you have questions about this request, please contact Brandon Stratford at bstratford@childtrends.org. If you have questions about the project, contact Mike Pergamit at mpergamit@urban.org .Thank you in advance for your assistance.
