This program has been followed by a research team from the UConn Department of Family Studies for over a decade. The team is headed by Preston Britner, Ph.D. and Anne Farell Ph.D. This program was originally aimed at providing permanent housing for mothers who were leaving residential substance abuse programs but could not reunify with their children because they went from having housing –thourgh the drug treatment facility – to being homeless. This program was so effective that the state of Connecticut asked the program to begin to serve women who were not in drug treatment but simply in need of housing and supportive services – and take the program statewide. You would also be interested to know that this program uses motivational interviewing successfully. You can learn more by visiting The Connection Inc. website at www.theconnectioninc.org or about the program director by clicking http://pschousing.org/award-winner-betsy-cronin Here is a link to a PowerPoint about the program: www.nchcw.org/files/housing/connecticut.ppt Also, I’d be happy to speak with you at length about their work. I hope this is helpful to you in building your new program. -Ruthie Ruth White, MSSA Executive Director National Center for Housing & Child Welfare 6711 Queens Chapel Rd University Park, MD 20782 phone 301-699-0151 toll free 866-790-6766 fax 301-699-0152 rwhite@nchcw.org MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "exg4.exghost.com" claiming to be www.nchcw.org Strengthening America's families through affordable housing.

Are there any innovative programs or evidence based options we should consider? We work mostly with parents and their children in foster care. Does motivational therapy work with this population? We are interested in published and unpublished reports and programs. TM
