Upcoming Webinar: "Addressing Homelessness among Youth Aging Out of Foster Care: A Social Networks Approach"
Date: June 2, 2015
Time: 10am - 11am PST / 1pm - 2pm EST
Pathways RTC's quarterly webinar is dedicated to the problem of homelessness. Jennifer Blakeslee, PhD will present a social network support perspective on this growing problem for youth aging out of foster care. She will present data on how the depleted social networks among youth aging out of foster care combined with the sudden ending of formal relationships at age 18 contributes to housing insecurity/homelessness among this group. Dr. Blakeslee will also discuss the possible future policy changes that may result as policymakers absorb this complex issue – and make intervention recommendations to bolster the informal social support networks of foster youth.
