Foster Care to 21: Enrollment Trends After Two Years

Open Publication PDF

Laura Schrager - December 2008

The 2006 Legislature passed 2SHB 2002, which allows youth who are over the age of 18 and have completed their secondary school education to remain in a licensed care setting as they pursue postsecondary academic or vocational training. This program, commonly known as Foster Care to 21 (FC to 21), began enrollment in July 2006; enrollment ends December 31, 2008. The Institute was directed to evaluate the program. This preliminary report finds that of the 85 youth who enrolled in FC to 21 prior to 2008, 25 (29 percent) were still enrolled, 6 (7 percent) had turned 21 or had completed their postsecondary program, and 54 (64 percent) were no longer enrolled. Thirty-nine (46 percent) stayed in FC to 21 for at least one year.
