The A Home Within At Home Series presents online programming responding to the evolving needs of current and former foster youth as well as the community of practitioners committed to serving them. Each workshop explores the experiences of foster youth in four contexts:

  • as individuals
  • in relationship with a therapist
  • in their families of origin and choice
  • in the broader systems with which they interact

Every workshop addresses these topics in the context of the pandemic, national reckoning with racism and injustice, and technology-enabled modalities.
