Creating Nurturing & Affirming Homes for Exceptional Youth

04/19/2018 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

San Diego County Foster Parent Assoc.

Type of Class

Instructors: Charisma de los Reyes, MSW, Child Welfare Services Analyst


LGBTQ+ youth enter the foster care system for many of the same reasons as non-LGBTQ+ youth in care, such as abuse, neglect, and parental substance abuse. Many LGBTQ+ youth have the added layer of trauma that comes with being rejected or mistreated because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the experiences, the unique risks they face and needs of LGBTQ+ youth in care. The good news is that these risks can be mitigated by foster and adoptive families who are willing to nurture and protect the health, safety, and well-being of these young people.
