Rapid Response and Evidence-Based Services for Runaway Youth in Denver
Lessons Learned from a Pay for Success Financed Project
Denver Collaborative Partnership is taking an upstream preventative approach to serving youth who run away and their families. A rapid response team is meeting the youth and families where they are and connecting them to evidence-based services (e.g., Multi-Systemic Therapy, Functional Family Therapy) aimed at preventing juvenile justice involvement and the need for out-of-home care. The Lab will conduct a rigorous evaluation of the project.
The Denver Runaways project is funded by Pay for Success.
