Abstract (Summary)

Children placed in out-of-home care experience challenges while in foster care. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between children placed in out-of-home care and the bond and closeness with their caregivers. Secondary data from the Midwest Study About the Crime During the Transition to Adulthood: How Youth Fare as They Leave Out-of-Home Care in Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin was used to develop a quantitative study on related variables. Findings indicated no significant relationship between outcomes for children in foster care and caregiver closeness.
