Two new reports published by ACF describe what is known about the human service needs of LGBT populations and discuss areas for future research:
- Human Services for Low-Income and At-Risk LGBT Populations: An Assessment of the Knowledge Base and Research Needs — explores what is known about the human service needs of low-income and at-risk LGBT people and their interactions with human services, especially those funded by ACF, and identifies important topics for further research in this area.
- Recognize, Intervene, Support, and Empower (RISE) Report — survey to determine the number of youth in L.A. County’s foster care system who identify as LGBTQ, and an intentional model to address both the system-level and individual-level bias against LGBTQ youth in foster care.
