Place Matters: Aligning Investments in a Community-Based Continuum of Care for Maine Youth Transitioning to Adulthood

This report from the University of Southern Maine puts forth for a continuum care model for Maine as well as several recommendations for policymakers. To inform the recommendations, the report provides examples of community-based programs and names national models in addition to policy examples from other states as of interest for Maine.

The report is the first in a planned series of reports planned by the Justice Policy Program that will map where assets currently exist to serve youth transitioning to adulthood and where opportunities for investment lie across Maine, as well as examine how place-based forces shape youth outcomes.
