Effective Strategies to Recruit and Retain Foster Homes for Teens: A Readiness Toolkit

  View Toolkit     Print PDF
Finding foster homes for teens can be a challenge as there is the perception that this age group presents with a unique subset of issues that are difficult to address and overcome (e.g., behavioral/mental health issues and juvenile delinquency). In Florida, there are no universal policies, standards, or recommended best practices in place regarding the recruitment of foster homes for teens. The Department of Children and Families requested that the Institute develop a tool to assist frontline recruiters in effectively recruiting and retaining appropriate foster families for this population.
