Foster Teens in Transition: Are they better off today?

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Foster Teens in Transition

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs.

For years, rates of homelessness among the city's former foster youth have remained stubbornly high. The city is connecting more teens to families, keeping more of them out of foster care in the first place, and developing new programs for pregnant and parenting foster teens. But for those remaining in foster and group homes, resources are being cut. Can NYC meet the needs of teens still in care, and those who have recently left? Are young people leaving foster care better prepared for adulthood today than they were a decade ago?

A Child Welfare Watch forum.

A conversation with:

Moderated by: Andrew White, director, Center for New York City Affairs
