Upcoming Webinars

3:00 – 5:00 pm PST

Webinar: Implementing your STRTP

Continuum Care Reform (CCR) is transforming group homes as we know it into a new category of congregate care, defined as Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs (STRTPs). With this transformation, providers will be implementing individualized treatment services for youth and families while also teaming with other external stakeholders to ensure care is coordinated around the path to permanency. Additionally, this shift will impact the infrastructure, rate, training plan, and outcome monitoring process for providers. This training is designed to help decision makers within an agency put the program statement into practice and ensure there is a cultural and practical shift in how care is delivered.
