Funding Community-Based Supports: What We Owe Young Adults Aging Out of Foster Care

Funding Community-Based Supports: What We Owe Young Adults Aging Out of Foster Care

Center for the Study of Social Policy Presents: Youth Thrive Policy Panel Tickets
Thu, Jan 27, 2022 at 2:00 PM ET

Effectively serving youth in their families and communities requires that policies be grounded in anti-racist principles and knowledge of adolescent development—including the Protective and Promotive Factors that are necessary for young people to thrive. However, the child welfare system is currently failing youth aging out of foster care despite the legal obligation and responsibility that the system assumed when it separated these young people from their families.

We owe young people who age out of care the structure and supports that they need to thrive. To fulfill this obligation and remove barriers to thriving, we need new investments to support these young people. Panelists will engage in a conversation about how and why we must support young people in the community after they have aged out of care.
