Housing Supports for Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 10 AM–4 PM

Mathematica Policy Research is hosting a forum for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services of interest to volunteer guardians ad litem and staff.

Tune in on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM for Housing Supports for Youth Aging Out of Foster Care presented via webinar.

The transition to adulthood for young people who exit foster care by aging out of the system is much more abrupt than it is for other youth. At age eighteen, or in some states at twenty-one, these young adults are expected to become independent virtually overnight. In most cases, they must find and maintain suitable housing with little or no support from either their family or the state.

Together with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Mathematica is hosting a research and policy forum and live webinar that will explore the challenge of securing safe, affordable, stable and supportive housing for this vulnerable population; describe new findings on this issue and their policy implications; and highlight opportunities to build the evidence base on the role of housing in supporting foster care youth as they transition to adulthood.

Participants may receive six (6) hours of continuing education credit. Remember, you can report your hours online quickly and easily.

You can browse the event flyer, download the agenda and register for the webinar.

We hope that you can make it!
