Webinar - Adoption of Older Foster Youth


2:00-3:00 p.m. (EDT)

This year, National Adoption Month focuses on the adoption of older youth in foster care-because "We Never Outgrow the Need for Family."

As part of the 2015 initiative, the Children's Bureau<http://listserve.icfi.com/t/623955/3104598/3763/0/>, in collaboration with Child Welfare Information Gateway and AdoptUSKids <http://listserve.icfi.com/t/623955/3104598/264/0/>, is hosting a free, interactive webinar that will focus on older youth adoption. 

This webinar will highlight the adoption story of Mary Lee Esq.<http://listserve.icfi.com/t/623955/3104598/50219/0/>, who now serves as the National YVLifeSet Coordinator for Youth Villages, and who inspired the creation of the Fostering Adoption to Further Student Achievement Act (nicknamed the Mary Lee Act). We will also showcase resources and tools for recruiting families for older youth, strategies to overcome common barriers to adoption, and examples of how to help older youth be open to the idea of being adopted.

Join us on October 6, 2015, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. (EDT) and learn about ways to promote and support permanency for older youth in foster care.[NFCM Button]<http://listserve.icfi.com/t/623955/3104598/50220/0/>

New Report Shows Continuing Maltreatment in U.S. Juvenile Correctional Facilities

While we have a fantastic crew taking care of kids in our Chaves County Juvenile Detention Facility, it is good to be aware:
In 2011, the Casey Foundation first called attention to the dangers of juvenile incarceration with evidence of widespread abuse in its No Place for Kids report. Four years later, a flood of new maltreatment revelations has emerged.
