At Western Michigan University, the Center for Fostering Success adapted the Casey framework so that education is the central focus of support offered to students, with stability in other life domains integrally tied to the understanding of what alumni of foster care need to thrive and succeed in college (Unrau, 2012). This webinar focused on the cultural and personal identity life domain and related resources.
Our guest for this webinar was Jessie Fullenkamp, Youth Programs Director at the Ruth Ellis Center. The Ruth Ellis Center provides long and short-term safe space and support services for runaway, homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth in Detroit and Southeastern Michigan.
