Key Takeaway

Young adults in foster care need all the help they can get on their rough road to independence

The Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act requires states to help young adults develop a personalized, self-directed transition plan during their final 90 days in foster care. This plan should address an individual’s options in key areas, such as housing, education and employment, to create a smooth and successful passage to adulthood.
