  • Of the 450,000 kids in foster care, many of them are aging out of the system, leaving them homeless and helpless. But some states are helping them become independent.

    I aged out of the foster care system and it was an extra lonely and uncertain time. Thankfully, I was still connected to my social worker who helped me be connected to the young adult program they had just started up, to help teach life skills...sounds very similar to what these ladies are doing and, now,as a 42 year old wife and Mom, I still cry when I hear these life stories that parallel my own. The future is bright for you, young lady, esp now that you have been able to get your story told on a National platform. Way to go...keep working hard and being thankful for the people around you who are cheering you on and helping you out. Social workers rock. I can speak from experience that brighter days are ahead...we former foster kids are resilient!! 💪

    You must say the states only help US citizens 'cos us Latino niggas don't matter to White America. All I've known is domestic violence at home, USA was never a safe place. I hate you all. I was only a problem that was never solved. Iowa abandoned me like a homeless dog, kicked me when I was already lying down on the floor. Fuck America!!!

    Great story. Age should be raised to 25!

    The age out age should be raised to 25! According to neuroscience, the brain doesn’t fully mature until then. If you grew up around abuse and trauma, your brain will most likely be stunted permanently.
