Resource Author/Owner/Service Provider

Annie E. Casey Foundation

Description

This  issue  brief  details  the  array  of  housing  options  that  states  can  consider  as  they  plan  to  extend  foster  care beyond  the  age  of  18. Designed  well,  housing  options  can  support  the  development  of  permanent  relationships with caring adults and provide opportunities for acquiring life skills, advanced education, and employment opportunities. Effective housing options can also provide important incentives for young people to choose to remain in care.
