Subject:RE: Homeless youth/maltreatment question

From my colleagues at Casey Family Programs: To my knowledge, most research in this arena focuses on the outcomes for alumni of foster care (namely, that many of them end up homeless). Studies on homeless populations, and homeless youth specifically, are quite rare given the transitory nature of the population. I’m not sure I know of any studies that have surveyed homeless youth about their maltreatment history, though I’m sure they have been conducted. The Midwest Evaluation (from Courtney, Dworsky, et al.) and our (Casey Family Programs’) own Northwest Foster Care Alumni Study looked at long-term outcomes (including homelessness) of youth leaving out-of-home care. I’d recommend looking for information from the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH). It seems that the information is out there somewhere, as this fact sheet would imply (the fact sheet claims “Across studies of homeless youth, sexual abuse experiences range from 17 to 53 percent and physical abuse ranges from 40 to 60 percent.”) The only research that I know of with that specificity was conducted by ACF for the creation of a toolkit, and can be found here: http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/fysb/resource/rhy-dv-toolkit I know that SAMHSA also has a Homelessness Portal with a Childrens’ page that may have some additional information: http://homeless.samhsa.gov/Channel/Children-421.aspx Delia Armendariz, MPA Data Analyst Data Analytics & Visualization Casey Family Programs P: 206.216.4153 M: 206.909.4261 www.casey.org safe children | strong families | supportive communities From: bounce-119409277-72393656@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-119409277-72393656@list.cornell.edu] On Behalf Of Laurel Edinburgh Sent: Friday, June 26, 2015 1:27 PM To: child-maltreatment-research-l@list.cornell.edu Subject: Re: Homeless youth/maltreatment question Google Scholar Elizabeth Saewyc, Phd Look at the McCreary Center website Look at Crimes against childre website >>> Timothy Zuel > 6/25/2015 9:31 PM >>> Wondering if anyone knows of research into the maltreatment history of homeless youth.
