Abstract (Summary)

Foster youth exiting the child welfare system will have poorer outcomes such as, low educational attainment, poor employment, high criminal activity, homelessness, and higher rate of public assistance when compared to non-foster care youth. The purpose of this thesis is to look at the values, theoretical goals, implications, and the outcomes of services outlined in the California Fostering Connections to Success Act of 2010, or Assembly Bill (A.B.) 12. A. B. 12 was designed to help foster care youth who reached the age of majority (18+) and extend their foster care services to age 21. By analyzing A.B. 12, this author will take a take a look at what the lawmakers intended, the results of the last five years, and what we can learn for future legislation.
