When a child is removed from the home, multiple organizations and people become involved in caring for that child and addressing his or her needs. Several Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities (SDFSC) grantees focus specifically on foster youth as a target population within their scope of prevention services.

In addition to these grantees, many of the other grantees operating programs such as Project SUCCESS (Schools Using Coordinated Community Efforts to Strengthen Students) or Strengthening Families Program (SFP), may not specifically target foster youth, but find that they have foster youth participating in their programs. By understanding the complex needs and underscoring the context in which services are provided, all SDFSC grantees can adapt their service models to effectively serve foster youth.
