July/August 2008Vol. 9, No. 6New Website on Youth Permanency Grantees

A new website highlights the accomplishments of the grantees in the Children's Bureau Youth Permanency Grant cluster. The 5-year grants were awarded in 2005 to nine organizations to implement effective open adoption programs for youth and sibling groups. The website features the progress of the grantee projects and includes:

  • Background information on the grant and its purpose
  • Reports and descriptions of each project, including such information as the target population and preliminary outcomes
  • Resources, tools, curricula, and surveys for working with birth and resource families, youth, courts, and social workers

Announcement of the new website was made in May by three Children's Bureau National Resource Centers:
