The qualitative research study focuses on barriers of services to foster youth that reside in a group home placement in Riverside County. To obtain data regarding this issue, fifteen group home providers were administered a questionnaire pertaining to the concerns and problems associated with service delivery when attempting to attain services for foster youth. The results of the study reveal that fragmentation of services largely exists in Riverside County, and further suggest an array of reasons associated with this breakdown of services.
