July-December 2020

March 10th, 2021

We are excited to share the 6-month progress report for the Texas Foster Youth Health Initiative (TFYHI)! This first-of-it’s-kind Initiative is meant to build relationships across child welfare and adolescent health systems to promote optimal health for child welfare-involved youth. Our goal is to make youth in foster care feel connected, safe, and empowered to make informed decisions about their sexual health and relationships.

In these next six months, we plan to continue developing and strengthening our network, testing and adapting different interventions focused on educating and empowering youth and caregivers, as well as launching the official Texas Foster Youth Health Initiative website in the beginning of Spring 2021!
