A Home Within’s Re-launching of Fostering Relationships
Today’s post comes courtesy of A Home Within’s Program Director Saralyn Ruff. For more information about A Home within, check out their website.
A Home Within is excited to announce the re-launching of Fostering Relationships (www.fosteringrelationships.org), our web-based knowledge-sharing platform for mentors and staff working with foster youth. For the past two years we have piloted this program with great success. Many have given us the feedback that our resources for pregnant and parenting youth and transition-aged youth have helped them build lasting and strong relationships with their mentees, but that they want more!
This month we will be expanding Fostering Relationships, adding more curricula for working with teen parents and new curriculum for LGBTQ youth. We will also be providing Spanish versions of all resources, and links to helpful books, articles, tools, local and national agencies. We also have plans to add self care materials for mentors and begin to spot light foster youth as experts who will answer mentors’ questions. We are excited about this and hope Fostering Relationships supports you in the amazing work you do!
