By conducting this first-of-its-kind comprehensive study, CalYOUTH answers
the following questions:
- Does extending foster care past age 18 influence youth outcomes during the transition to adulthood?
- What factors influence the types of support youth receive during the transition to adulthood in the context of extended foster care?
- How do living arrangements and other services that result from extending foster care influence the relationship between extending care and youth outcomes?
