Studies show that young adults who are in or have aged out of foster care, struggle with education and employment because of these issues:

-Unstable Schools-

Almost all foster children move schools at least once a year. 1 in 3 go through 5 or more schools.

-Limited Education-

50% of foster children do not get a high school diploma. Less than 3% get a college degree.

-Unreliable Transportation-

Finding reliable transportation is one of the biggest challenges facing those in foster care.

-Inadequate Housing-

1 in 4 former foster youth experience homelessness within 4 years of leaving the system.

-Emotional Stress-

25% of those who have aged out of foster care will suffer from PTSD.

- Substance Dependency-

Former foster youth are 7 times more likely to develop drug dependency than their peers.
