Nature and Context

Statistics are bleak for youth aging out of the United States foster care system. Thousands of foster kids about to age out of foster care could be left behind by a system that regularly neglects the very people it is meant to protect. Providing resources, goal setting, and extended care could save lives and help them become a part of the community that has so far overlooked them.
