Family Finding: Building Connections for Youth
Family Finding is a program that looks to connect at risk youth with people that are supportive. This most often means locating biological relatives or other individuals that the youth has been disconnected from. Our goal is for every youth to have a lifetime network of supportive individuals they can turn to in times of need. Presentation will provide information regarding the process and demonstrate some of the tools used during meetings.
In this Zoom presentation, advocates will learn the about the following:
