FosterPort, Transition-Aged Youth Web Portal

In an effort provide a one-stop-shop to understand what older youth in foster care face, a Washington D.C.-based consultancy firm teamed up with a charitable foundation to create a new web portal.

Launched in January of 2017, FosterPort, curated by Child Focus Partners and funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, provides links and basic information on seminal research, experts, advocacy groups and service providers in 20 “impact issues” key to transition-aged foster youth.

“We want people to seek it out as number one resource on older kids in foster care,” said Tiffany Allen, a senior associate with Child Focus Partners who is also heading up FosterPort.

The site has information on 48 experts, 91 publications and scores more posts on key websites and advocacy organizations.
