The Fostering Connections Law

Have you heard of the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008? This law covers youth in foster care and many things were changed by this law.

This law states that the federal government will give money to states for certain youth in foster care to be transported to their "school of origin" and to provide support and services to certain youth who leave foster care on or after their 16th birthday and until they reach 21.

In this video from Emory University's Barton Child Law and Policy Center an attorney explains the Fostering Connections Law and you can learn more from the Foster Care Alumni's overview here.
