What is a Foster Child?
Youth in foster care have been abused, abandoned or neglected by their parents or legal guardian, and who, through no fault of their own, have been removed from their homes by the Department of Social Services. Youth in foster care face an extra set of challenges that severely impacts their opportunities to develop into independent and stable adults.
What Happens to Youth When They Age Out of Foster Care
When a child in care turns eighteen, they emancipate, or more commonly known, age out of the foster care system. This means that they are no longer a dependent of the state and are responsible for their own well-being. Former youth in care face the challenges of finding housing, work and enrolling in school — ALONE. With more than 425,000 children and older youth in the nation's foster system, the number of children who exit the foster care system each year without finding a permanent family has increased over the years by nearly 29,500.
