April 3, 2020Articles » Annie E. Casey: Spotlighting Youth Engagement and Preventing Teen Placements

Thank you to our colleagues from the Annie E. Casey Foundation for their incredible work on youth development.

A special two-volume issue of Child Welfare journal features two articles penned by staffers of the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The articles address two significant aspects of young people in foster care.

The second article explores how entry-prevention programs can help keep families together by reducing the need to remove young people from their homes for reasons unrelated to neglect or abuse.
