Meets every 3rd Tuesday of each month
Leader: Lisa de las Alas
Topic: It is important to focus on protective factors because youth in foster care are often exposed to multiple risk factors putting them at a greater risk for poorer outcomes. Protective factors such as individuals, families or the larger society who can promote their well‐being and be a positive inﬂuence or strong support system can reduce the risk for negative outcomes. Protective factors are much diﬀerent than intervention and prevention eﬀorts. Although helpful, and intended to reduce risk exposure, they may also take longer to show evidence of impact.
