Youths Transitioning Foster Care System

The foster care system is an arrangement that help the youths who are unable to live harmoniously with their families by providing them with temporary care in other homes. These youths often leave the foster care after attaining the age of 18 years. The young people who are transitioning out of the foster care system have always had a challenge due to economic and social issues that accompany their long periods away from home in the placement centers. This is particularly because most are placed in these homes when they are very young and grow up until their adolescence.  As a result of their experiences, these youths stand a higher risk for poor educational results, health difficulties, and lack of stable employment, homelessness and early parenthood among others.
