Project Abstract

This project aims to (1) build a routine and replicable process for generating statewide data and establish a baseline for a U.S. Government Accountability Office study and report requirement in the Family First Prevention Services Act and informing Colorado policy and practice, and (2) report on initial trends in the crossover youth population and make recommendations for how to evaluate “whether the lack of available congregate care placements under the jurisdiction of the child welfare systems is a contributing factor to that result.”
