WHAT DOES REAL CHANGE LOOK LIKE IN PRACTICE?
Through the EMBRACE Project, we aim to drive meaningful change in research and society. By conducting research initiatives like those at the core of this project, we gain crucial insights into the challenges faced by foster youth of color. These insights inform policy adjustments that directly address these barriers and promote equitable outcomes.
At the same time, we are committed to raising awareness among the public about foster care processes to promote better understanding and empathy. We will actively encourage the engagement of parents and mentors from diverse backgrounds, nurturing a supportive environment for youth in foster care. The EMBRACE project envisions practice improvement as a fusion of comprehensive research, education, and community involvement, creating a transformative impact on the lives of Black foster youth and ultimately driving positive change throughout society.
