Subject:Re: Foster Care and Prisoners

The Midwest Evaluation of the Adult Functioning of Foster Youth looked at criminal justice system involvement among youth who aged out of foster care. You can find all the reports on Chapin Hall's website. The rates were very high, especially for young men. "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." --- FDR www.chapinhall.org Amy Dworsky, Ph.D. Senior Researcher Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago 1313 E 60th St. Chicago, IL 60637 773.256.5164 (Phone) 773-256-5364 (FAX)>>> On 2/26/2014 at 10:51 PM, in message , Gail Goodman wrote: Dear Colleagues, For a literature review for my State, I seek reports, publications, and statistics on the percentage of prisoners in prison who were formerly in foster care. I am primarily interested in prison rather than county jails but the two may be intertwined in some states. Also if there is any data on the topic going in the opposite direction (i.e. what percentage of youth in foster care end in prison), that would also be a much interest. I would greatly appreciate any guidance, references, or information you can provide. My contact information is below, if you prefer to send information that way. Thank you for your help!
