Our very own Research Consultants, Saralyn and Deanna, have co-authored a new article on the needs and requested resources of foster youth in college in the first months of the pandemic. Findings highlight the ways we can collectively support current and former foster youth with their educational goals during COVID-19, including increasing access to mental health services, support for connection and relationship, and resource information to promote self-agency.

"The United States is entering its third COVID winter, with no end to the pandemic in sight. There is a loud minority of vaccine-averse Americans, and a dangerous number of anti-science politicians cynically manipulating that for power. At the same time, the mental health of Americans is entering its own crisis from the stresses of pandemic life. Our guest today is the Surgeon General of the United States, Vice Admiral Vivek Murthy, whose job it is to help navigate these dangerous waters and keep all of us healthy."
