Supporting Young People Transitioning from Foster Care: Findings from a National Survey

This new study from Child Trends describes the array of services available to foster youth in 47 states and territories until they reach the age of 21 and shows how, despite these available services, the vast majority of foster youth choose to leave the system entirely by the age of 18. These youth completely forego these services and the benefits they bring in education, health and employment opportunities. The possible reasons why they do this as well as some possible ways of still providing the many important services to these youth are discussed.
