Reintegrating youth into the home and school settings following a stay in an out-of-home care setting, through either a child welfare or juvenile justice case, is a challenge for administrators, families and children across the country. Too often, this transition results in poor educational outcomes, subsequent out-of-home placement and/or recidivism. Dr. Alexandra Torkelson-Trout will provide an overview of the On the Way Home aftercare model, its development and its impact on the educational and placement stability of youth reintegrating into the home and community school settings following placement in therapeutic residential care. This will be followed by a facilitated discussion about what barriers there currently are or what supports are needed for successful reintegration. Dr. Anne Hobbs will discuss findings froma Juvenile Justice Institute Report, which examined youth re-entering Lancaster County following a commitment to YRTC. She will discuss what we know about youth reentering and what research shows us should be included in a re-entry plan.
