Subject:Re: Programs that assist youth aging out of care

There are a lot of programs that serve youth aging out of care. I am most familiar with programs here in the US, but there are programs in other countries as well. Relatively few of the US programs have been rigorously evaluated. The Multi-Site Chafee Evaluation is the only rigorous evaluation of Chafee funded independent living programs. For a more general review of programs. see: Donkoh C, Underhill K, Montgomery P. Independent living programmes for improving outcomes for young people leaving the care system.
