ABOUT THE STUDY

This Texas Youth Permanency Study seeks to understand the quality and continuity of relationships developed by youth in care and identify factors that support strong relationships that may be sustained as the youth transition into adulthood.

We’re accomplishing this by collecting interviews with youth who are involved in care and following them over the course of 5 years to better understand their personal experiences and provide research evidence that involves their voice.
