These research recommendation briefs were developed as part of a larger Needs Based Assessment that sought to discover what is known about low-income and at-risk lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and their interactions with human services, especially services funded by ACF, and identifies important areas for further research.
The briefs are separated into three topic areas: low-income and at-risk LGBT populations, the child welfare system and LGBT youth and LGBT adults, and LGBT youth (particularly runaway and homeless youth and sexual health). These briefs provide specific recommendations that could be used to expand the knowledge base surrounding these populations.
A Project Brief summarizes the Needs Assessment report.
The Needs Assessment report details the findings of the project.
