Description

Scope of Work University of Kentucky, College of Social Work Tracking Transitions: Efficient Data Monitoring for Foster Youth and Alumni The John Chafee Independence Program is a federally funded program designed to teach children and youth in out of home care (OOHC) and youth formerly in OOHC the skills that will enable them to be self-sufficient after they are released from OOHC. The Chafee Independence Program mandates that all children twelve (12) and over in OOHC receive independent living services, regardless of the permanency goal. Reliable data is germane to proffering adept services to these transition-aged foster youth and alumni. This project conceptualizes a framework for data collection and management related to transitional system-involved youth throughout Kentucky. Objective I: Collaborate with the Cabinet to implement a process to purchase gift cards to be used as incentives for youth who complete the survey related to Independent Living services at 17, 19, and 21 years of age. The gift cards will be tracked and distributed by the Department of Community Based Services. Objective II: Collaborate with the Cabinet to implement a process to purchase gift cards for youth sixteen and older in out of home care who complete the formal life skills curriculum. The gift cards will be tracked and distributed by the Department of Community Based Services. Objective III: Collaborate with the Cabinet to implement a process to purchase gift cards for youth meeting targeted milestones while on extended commitment. The gift cards will be tracked and distributed by the Department of Community Based Services. Objective IV: Program staff will develop and implement continuity plans for service provision using virtual platforms and technologies. These virtual service provision plans will be executed as needed to ensure the continuity of services related to Tracking Transitions.
