Support To Reunite, Involve and Value Each Other (STRIVE)

Project Name: 

STRIVE (Support To Reunite, Involve and Value Each Other)

The STRIVE program aimed to improve residential stability and the quality of residential life, reduce the number of runaway episodes, as well as reduce HIV-related sexual and substance use risk acts. Family conflict is found to cause runaway episodes for youth. Targeting newly homeless youth, this study developed and implemented a 5-session family-based intervention. STRIVE sessions take place with families while youth are still in shelters and/or being served by community agencies, and as they transition back to the home.
