Study shows Foster youth who stay in state systems into adulthood fare better
Researchers say young people in foster care fare better in life if they stay into early adulthood. Their study shows that those who left the system when they turned 18 were 50 percent more likely to be without work and not in school than those who continue to receive state support. They also say those who left the system also were much more likely to be pregnant, in jail and struggling to pay for basic items such as rent. They also found that about 14 percent of young adults who left the system at age 18 said they had been homeless at some point. One researcher says the data suggests, "we're not doing enough to help."
