Positive Youth Transitions (PYT)
To benchmark our work, we will look at the 429 young people currently in foster care who are most at risk of homelessness - those with the designation of Another Planned Permanent Living Arrangement (APPLA). These youth are disproportionally African American and American Indian/Alaskan Native and we know that many have disabilities. We anticipate that the system changes made will benefit all youth.
