Presentation Type: poster presentation

Synopsis: Findings of a recent evaluation of psychosocial functioning among 180 youth residing in Maryland group homes will be presented. Findings suggest that while group home placement may benefit youth on average, certain characteristics including gender, age and initial level of need may be negatively correlated with outcomes. Presenters will discuss implications for policies around group home placement and future research investigating the differential impact of group homes versus other community-based services.
