“The Transition to Adulthood: How States Can Support Older Youth in Foster Care” highlights effective strategies and promising approaches aimed at improving outcomes for youth as they age out of the foster care system. The report, published by the National Governor's Association Center for Best Practices, touches briefly on comparative outcomes for foster youth and youth in the general population, possible reasons for the differing outcomes, and state strategies to improve prospects for youth in the transition to adulthood. The chapters that follow detail state strategies in the following five areas: education, employment, housing, health care, and relationships. Examples of successful state and local efforts are provided throughout the report.
