New legislation helps teens aging out of foster care transition to adulthood

 

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Governor John Kasich is expected to sign off on new legislation that will help teens who are aging out of foster care become more successful adults. Right now, when foster children turn 18 they face a sharp cut-off of resources and support, resulting in many of them becoming homeless. This new legislation would extend support services until age 21.
