Aging Out of Foster Care

For the program’s first year in 2009-2010, members of Youth Fostering Change focused on an important issue affecting too many older youth in foster care: aging out of care—leaving the system without any legal, permanent family connections.

Youth advocates produced "Life After Foster Care: Our Stories," a video featuring interviews with youth about their experiences aging out of the system.

They distributed copies of their video to key legislators and policy-makers around Pennsylvania.
