PRA’s focus on education revolves around building the structure that students need to succeed in school. We believe that kids with behavioral health needs are better served when living at home, attending school, and engaging in the necessary treatment and services required to help them succeed. We work with schools to build partnerships with behavioral health providers and families to ensure that youth receive the right services at the right time.

Homeless Children’s Roundtable

In 2009, PRA was awarded the ASPE’s Homeless Children’s Roundtable project. PRA worked with ASPE and three subject-matter experts to: (1) produce background papers that reviewed the research on young people experiencing homelessness and described key federal legislation related to homeless children and the range of federal services available to them; (2) convene a roundtable of researchers, policy experts, practitioners, and federal staff that discussed, assessed, and strategized how to improve services and long-term outcomes for young people who experience homelessness; and (3) summarize the proceedings of the roundtable so that ASPE staff could create a series of issue briefs.
