Each year in the U.S., 24,000 young people age out of the foster care system with nowhere to go. One in five will become homeless. One in four will end up behind bars. Seventy percent of the young women will become pregnant. And only half of those who age out will be employed by age 24. “Fostering Hope” tells the stories of young people facing this challenge — and the work being done by individuals and agencies trying to mentor and guide them as they face the challenges of making the transition from foster care to adult life.
