Imagine moving 19 times before your 18th birthday. Living with 19 different families or in group homes.
Changing Outcomes for Youth in State Care
Teenagers without families are in trouble. Often these teens live in group homes or temporary foster homes. If these teens don’t find families before they leave state care, there is a good chance they will end up homeless or unemployed. The girls are likely to get pregnant at least once before they turn 24. The boys are likely to become parents. http://www.chapinhall.org/research/report/midwest-evaluation-adult-functioning-former-foster-youth
