California Connected by 25: A California Family to Family Strategy
Building Partnerships & Improved Outcomes for Transitioning Foster Youth

California Connected by 25 Initiative (CC25I) is a collaborative effort of five foundations assisting public child welfare agencies and their communities to build comprehensive transition-aged foster youth supports and services for youth 14 through 24. Through comprehensive assessment, planning and practice innovations developed with youth, caregivers, and other partners, effective strategies are being developed that can be spread to improve transition practice and outcomes statewide. An outcomes framework and Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) database align with the 7 key focus areas of our Logic Model to provide critical information for on-going self-evaluation and program improvement. The data collection strategy also assists with ILP services and incentives tracking and provides date for the quarterly county "At Emancipation" data report. Youth engagement, technical assistance and twice-yearly convenings are important in creating the learning environment that supports successful implementation of Connected by 25 in California.
