Anu Family Services serves children living in out-of-home care in 75 counties in the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota in the USA. The workshop will focus on an innovative model of care called Intensive Permanence Services which combines the models of Family Search and Engagement with the 3-5-7 Model of grief, loss, and trauma for children living in out-of-home care. It is used with youth who have no known connections to family or other adults who could care for them. Youth are included in determining who is important to them, and Anu social workers perform exhaustive searches for those people the youth has identified in an effort to increase the youth’s stable connections. This serve uses a new evidence-informed scale “The Youth Connections Scale” designed by the University of Minnesota and Anu to promote and evaluate successful connections. The scale will be presented and discussed.
