Improving transitions to adulthood for youth served by the foster care system : a report on the strengths and needs of existing aftercare services by Robin Nixon( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The transition from foster care to adult independence brings many unexpected challenges. This document reports on the experiences of young adults as they leave the foster care system. It identifies community-based organizations (CBOs) that provide support and services to these adults, and relates opinions of both in order to identify what is needed to strengthen the service system and to build the capacity of CBOs working with former foster youth. The Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) surveyed organizations that provide services to young and older adults after they have left foster care. The results were used to create a service directory for former foster youth, social workers, and other CBOs in need of resources for assisting former foster youth, in addition to building a foundation of information about local community support for foster youth. This report includes recommendations for building capacity at the local levels and for strengthening the overall service system to facilitate successful long term outcomes for foster youth. (JDM)

City kids count : data on the well-being of children in large cities by Baltimore, MD Annie E. Casey Foundation( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents the best available data on children living in the 50 largest cities in the United States. Each city is assessed in terms of 10 key indicators of child well-being. These indicators focus, as they do in the annual "Kids Count" report, on outcome measures of children's educational social, economic, and physical well-being. Several demographic, social, and background measures are also shown for each city. A significant share of all U.S. children (one in six in 1990) and a disproportionate share of disadvantaged children live in one of these cities. Roughly one-half of all the children in the United States who live in "distressed" neighborhoods, defined as communities with high concentrations of poverty, large numbers of female-headed families, substantial unemployment, and high welfare dependency live in 1 of these 50 largest cities. Profiles of child well-being in each of the 50 largest cities in the United States are followed by appendixes that place cities in rank order by indicator and a chart of child poverty rates in the 50 largest cities from 1969 to 1989. Definitions and data sources are listed. Some notes on study data are presented, and the primary contacts are listed for state KIDS COUNT projects. (SLD)

City kids count pocket guide : measures of child well-being in the nation's largest cities by Annie E. Casey Foundation( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 15 years, the KIDS COUNT initiative, has produced data books filled with statistics reflecting the general well-being of children in each state. This Pocket Guide is designed to give state-level policymakers a better understanding of conditions faced by families in their large cities and how they compare to those in the large cities located in other states, as well as the country as a whole. This special KIDS COUNT Pocket Guide provides the kind of detailed, objective data needed to track and monitor the well-being of children in 71 large cities. The measures presented here provide information on the following: (1) Poverty; (2) Family structure; (3) Parental employment; (4) Housing affordability; and (5) Education. The data show that too many children growing up in large cities do not have the supports they need to become successful workers, responsible parents, and engaged citizens. Addressing--and resolving--issues facing disadvantaged children and families requires a combination of know-how, political will, and tangible resources. This publication contains a map, Data Sources, and Definition of Large Cities, City by City Data, and a directory of primary contacts for State KIDS COUNT Projects

This publication presents a broad array of data designed to illuminate the status of America's children and to assess trends in their well-being. By updating the assessment every year, this book provides ongoing benchmarks with which states can see how they have advanced or regressed since 1990. The book focuses on 10 indicators: percent low-birthweight babies; infant mortality rate; child death rate; rate of teen deaths by accident, homicide, and suicide; teen birth rate; percent of teens who are high school dropouts; percent of teens not attending school and not working; percent of children living with parents who do not have full-time, year-round employment; percent of children in poverty; and percent of families with children headed by a single parent. Data are provided for the nation and for each state on demographic change, economic characteristics, child health and education, and child care indicators. Three appendixes present kids count standard scores and national rankings, multi-year trend data for kids count indicators, and multi-year national composite ranks. The publication also includes definitions and data sources, criteria for selecting kids count indicators, and primary contacts for state kids count projects. (Sm)
Rural kids count pocket guide : measures of child well-being in the nation's rural areas by Baltimore, MD Annie E. Casey Foundation( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This "Pocket Guide" is derived from the "2004 KIDS COUNT Special Report: City & Rural KIDSCOUNT Data Book." It is designed to give state-level policymakers a better understanding of conditions faced by families in their rural communities and how they compare to those in the rural parts of other states, as well as the country as a whole. This special guide provides the kind of detailed, objective data needed to track and monitor the well-being of children in the rural areas of every state. The measures presented here provide information on the following: Poverty; Family structure; Parental employment; Housing affordability; and Education. The data show that too many children growing up in isolated rural communities, in every region of the country, do not have the supports they need to become successful workers, responsible parent, and engaged citizens. Addressing--and resolving--issues facing disadvantaged children and families requires a combination of know-how, political will, and tangible resources. [This "KIDS COUNT Pocket Guide" was produced for the Annie E. Casey Foundation by the Population Reference Bureau (PRB).]
