Eight Ways to Promote the Health and Well-Being of LGBTQ+ Youth Involved with Child Welfare Alexandra Citrin and Megan Martin The Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA)1 marks a substantial movement toward child welfare reform by beginning to bring child welfare financing into alignment with what research tells us is best for children and families. Children and youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning (LGBTQ+)2 experience both disproportionate involvement with child welfare, and once involved, disparate outcomes including placement instability and longer stays in foster care. Through FFPSA there is a significant opportunity for child welfare systems to address existing disproportionalities and disparities for LGBTQ+ children, youth and families. Successful implementation of these strategies will in turn support state efforts in achieving an equitable child welfare system with better outcomes and improved well-being for all children, youth and families.   August 2019
Ensuring Competent Residential Interventions for Youth with Diverse Gender and Sexual Identities and Expressions Douglas A. Glick This paper focuses on the many issues faced in the field in providing quality residential interventions for youth of sexual diversity, including sexual orientation and gender identity. For lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, and two-spirit (LGBTQI2-S) youth in residential care, open expression of sexuality or gender identity can be a significant challenge, with many barriers faced both within the program and in the community at large. This paper provides guidelines and strategies for serving and supporting LGBTQI2-S youth, building on the efforts of programs that have successfully created “sexual and gender minority-positive” cultures.   2014
