Foster Placement Stability Mediation

Mediation graphicThe goal of Foster Placement Stability Mediation is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for youth in foster care to express their concerns. The Lucas County Pathways to Success Initiative will utilize mediation to facilitate communication among foster youth, foster parents, caseworkers, the CASA/GAL, school personnel, and/or court personnel in order to reduce juvenile delinquency, avoid placement disruption and increase academic success. The use of mediation will allow the youth and foster parent the opportunity to communicate with each other and develop a plan that works best for them.
