White House Announces New Steps to Support Foster Youth

The White House announced last Dec 8 that it is working to provide better support for foster youth. The administration is focusing on seven steps:

23,000 of the over 400,000 children in the foster care system age out each year, according to CNN. The government recognizes the risks associated with this high percentage of youth who never get their forever families and have to hit adulthood without proper preparation.

More specific information about these seven points of focus are available at the White House Press site.
