POLICY victory: Extension of Care FOR FOSTER YOUTH
VOLUNTARY EXTENSION OF CARE ACT
Most Rhode Island foster youth -some 125 per year- are required to leave state supported care when they turn 18. Up until 2007, Rhode Island continued foster care services for these vulnerable young people to the age of 21 so they would have more time to succeed.
