Children with Disabilities in Foster Care
From 2005-2006, the organizations conducted a comprehensive literature review and released a report titled Forgotten Children: A Case for Action for Children and Youth with Disabilities in Foster Care.
Children’s Rights produced a clearinghouse of information and resources for UCP affiliates and other disability organizations to encourage them to explore or expand their involvement in providing services for children with disabilities in foster care. These resources are available here.
Children’s Rights also surveyed UCP affiliates regarding their perspectives on the quality of services available to children with disabilities in foster care — and outcomes experienced by these children — and released a report titled Perspectives on Children with Disabilities in the Foster Care System and How UCP Can Help: Findings from a Survey of UCP Affiliates. The report is available online here.
This work was made possible through the generous support of the Loreen Arbus Foundation.
