Newly-released Report Shows How Florida Compares to Other States in Outcomes of Youth Transitioning from Foster Care
On November 13, the Annie E. Casey Foundation released Fostering Youth Transitions, a report with the most comprehensive data ever collected across all 50 states to help illustrate how young people ages 14 and older are faring as they transition from foster care to adulthood.
