REACHING HIGHER: A Curriculum for Foster/Adoptive Parents and Kinship Caregivers Caring for LGBTQ Youth Reaching Higher was developed by the National Center for Child Welfare Excellence in an effort to reach an improved level of service delivery for LGBTQ youth and their families. The curriculum was developed to increase the competence of any family providing out of home care for youth—foster/adoptive families, kinship care families, guardianship families, or adoptive families. The curriculum is meant to enhance the skills of those providing direct care for LGBTQ youth. The curriculum with some adaptation may also be helpful for those providing care in group homes and residential care facilities.
