On July 29, 2013, GRACE and the National Foster Youth Institute co-convened a foster care conference "Improving Outcomes for Foster Youth in California" in coordination with Congresswoman Karen Bass.

The conference brought together members of Congress, the California State Legislature, California state officials, County officials, top academics, service providers and former foster youth to discuss the latest research, programs and recommendations for improvement in the following areas:

-Improving the recruitment, training and support for foster parents

-Improving comprehensive care for foster youth requiring intensive residential-based services

-Identifying and supporting at-risk families prior to intervention


Over 200 attendees and speakers participated in the day-long conference. It was a valuable first step in the process of identifying, gaining consensus and then implementing measures to address the gaps and weaknesses in the foster care system.
