On May 29, 2015, the White House, The Children’s Bureau, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and
the Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative, hosted a national meeting at the Eisenhower
Executive Office Building in Washington, District of Columbia to address normalcy for youth in
foster care. Titled “White House Convening on Developmentally Appropriate Services for
Children, Youth, and Young Adults in Foster Care,” the meeting assembled young people who
have been in foster care, foster parents, child welfare directors and commissioners from across
the country, and leading researchers in adolescent development. Meeting participants
developed recommendations to help Federal Government leaders instruct States in the
implementation of the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act (H.R. 4980)
provisions, aimed at improving children’s experiences in foster care.
