Employment Outcomes for Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

Analyses in this report show that youth aging out of foster care have very low levels of employment and earnings. Fewer than half of youth aging out of foster care have earnings in any given quarter, many have no earnings at all during the three-year study period, and those who are employed earn very little. Specific employment rates vary substantially among the three states studied.
