Caring for LGBTQ Youth: An Introduction for Foster Parents



All Children-All Families Webinar ITNAll Children – All Families, an initiative of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, is offering an introductory level webinar for foster parents – aimed at meeting the needs of kids in care who identify as LGTBQ.

All Children – All Families offers a wide variety of webinars like this one to address the needs of foster youth, for both foster care professional and foster parents.

Foster and adoptive parents are an extremely diverse community of people with one thing in common: the desire to love, nurture and care for children and youth. Many parents may not realize that LGBTQ youth are overrepresented in foster care and are at higher risks of rejection and harm while in care. This webinar will first explain key terms and concepts that all foster/adoptive parents need to know in order to better understand LGBTQ youth. Research on the importance of providing affirming homes for these youth, as well as concrete tips for how to be affirming, will then be presented.
