Crossover Youth: A Shared Responsibility
The California Child Welfare Co-Investment Partnership released its latest issue of insights Volume X, Crossover Youth: A Shared Responsibility.
Children and youth involved in the Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice systems are among the most vulnerable of California’s children. These young people are more likely to be separated from their families, suffer behavioral health problems and have poor educational outcomes. Although the challenges they face are critical, the current institutional responses and interventions may not be best suited to serve these children.
This issue of insights offers an overview of data, policy and reform efforts that seek to better understand crossover youth and share accountability for their well-being.
