  • Description

A phone survey was conducted with State Independent Living (IL) Coordinators in December 2003 through April 2004 to gather information regarding discharge policies, funding, and housing options available to youth aging out of the foster care system. A total of 38 State IL Coordinatos (including the District of Columbia) participated in this project. Although it is recognized that young people aging out of the foster care system confront many challenges upon discharge, this report is specifically focused on the sissue of housing for young people transitioning out of the foster care system.
