  • Description

In our research for this publication, we identified successful programs, policies, and strategies that have been helping older children find permanent families.We then examined how lessons learned from each effective program or policy change could be distilled into a number of action steps that others might follow. Finally, we created a series of overall recommendations and spelled out how advocates can learn from others to create an integrated system of programs and policies that will help older children and youth find permanent families.
