Fostering Youth Transitions Using Data to Drive Policy and Practice DecisionsThis Annie E. Casey Foundation brief, which utilizes the most comprehensive data set ever collected across all 50 states, fills in key details about the lives of young people who have experienced foster care. In no uncertain terms, the data describe how youth in foster care are falling behind their general population peers and on track to face higher levels of joblessness and homelessness as adults. With these challenges clear, Casey urges leaders to take action — to collect better data, support better practices and develop better policies — so that youth in care can get the support they need, transition to adulthood and thrive.

In This Brief, You’ll Learn:

  • The challenges that young people face while in and exiting care.
  • How foster youth are faring in each state as they transition to adulthood.
  • How older youth in foster care are — or are not — accessing resources.
  • Ways that the foster care experience and outcomes differ for young people of color.
