Almost all foster children move schools at least once a year. 1 in 3 go through 5 or more schools.
50% of foster children do not get a high school diploma. Less than 3% get a college degree.
Finding reliable transportation is one of the biggest challenges facing those in foster care.
1 in 4 former foster youth experience homelessness within 4 years of leaving the system.
