  • Ways state and local agen­cies have engaged fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties in design­ing a con­tin­u­um of care that address­es the needs of young peo­ple of col­or and LGBTQ youth.
  • How to cul­ti­vate com­mu­ni­ty sup­port for pro­grams that pre­vent the need for fos­ter care or help kids grow up in fam­i­lies while in fos­ter care.
