Abstract:     
For many young people who age out of foster care, the transition to adulthood and economic self-sufficiency can be abrupt. At age 18 or 21, these young adults — who numbered fewer than 28,000 in 2010 — must find and secure suitable housing and, in most cases, do so with little or no support from either their family or the state. As a result, many youth who age out of foster care find themselves homeless or precariously housed.
