We’ll be studying the impacts of three types of fostering. 1) Field trips: a few hours out of the shelter, 2) Sleepovers: a night or two away from the shelter, and 3) Longer-term fostering: stays in a foster home of a week or longer.
We are looking for shelters to join our study!
Shelters that join our study will receive at no cost: foster program training and implementation support from Maddie’s Fund. Our research teams at ASU and VT will work together with you and your shelter staff to collect data on the foster program.
