A disproportionate number of young adults who transition out of foster care become homeless. This workshop will focus on the continuing evaluation of an innovative federally funded initiative that has been developed to address this issue in Westchester. Highlighted will be risk and protective factors, identified by a Fordham GSS research team, that are helping to inform the foster care/child welfare system’s consideration of new policy and program directions.

Speaker Bio:
Ralph Gregory, L.M.S.W., has been a GSS adjunct professor in the social policy area since 2010 and is also a member of the foster care research team. Previously, he served for almost 30 years as CEO of the United Way of Westchester and Putnam. And before that, he served as the executive director of two direct service agencies—a residential treatment center and a multi-site senior center operation.
