Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning (LGBTQ)

The Center helps States and territories build the capacity to more effectively serve and support LGBTQ youth and foster and adoptive families. The goal of this focus area is to increase agency awareness, knowledge, and cultural competency and implement plans that address the safety, permanency, and well-being of LGBTQ youth and families. Strategies to build capacity include developing and disseminating products, tools, and resources to support agencies in meeting the needs of LGBTQ youth and families safely and effectively; applying an LGBTQ lens across practice areas, programming, and policy; and collaborating with subject-matter experts to increase knowledge and skills related to research and best practices.
