Foster Family Activities
Are you fostering Teenagers?

If so here is a great opportunity to receive valuable help and at the same time receive training hours and
monetary compensation.

Researchers from the University of Washington are working in collaboration with DSHS/Children’s
Administration and the Alliance for Child Welfare Excellence to find ways to help foster teens and their
caregivers get along well and make healthy choices

Teenagers in foster care are at elevated risk for engaging in unhealthy behaviors. Caregivers need tools
to create healthy environments that buffer this risk. There are few preventive, cost-effective, evidence-
based programs that help families with these challenges. Connecting is adapted from an evidence
based program designed to help families develop skills to reduce risk of drug use, risky sexual behavior,
and violence among teens.
