Pandemic Shines Light on Needs of Older Youth Involved with Child Welfare

Wednesday, April 22, 2020
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT

A session addressing the COVID-19 related challenges facing older youth who are involved with child welfare or alumni of foster care. These young people may encounter unique challenges during this time. For example, youth in foster care may be having difficulties navigating “sheltering-in-place” while residing in residential group homes or as they face ‘aging-out’ of the system. College campus closures and the ensuing loss of housing and meals are particularly problematic for alumni of foster care. For youth who are in juvenile detention centers or are homeless, there are additional stressors to be considered, including the high risk of exposure to COVID-19. For all youth who are system-involved, how can we recognize and address the trauma that they may be experiencing as a result of this pandemic? How do we ensure that their needs remain on the radar in current and future responses to vulnerable populations?

This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Victoria Kelly, Board Member, Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) and Dr. Cassandra Simmel, Associate Professor Rutgers University, School of Social Work. In this webinar, the moderators will host a discussion with a panel of researchers, advocates, and practitioners from across the country who will describe the difficulties and challenges for youth who are system-involved and also offer suggestions about managing the impact of COVID-19. The webinar will also focus on how to help state and local agencies prepare for the inevitable surge in post-COVID-19 system involvement.
