Aging Out of Foster Care
August 31, 2012  

Dianna Walters with the Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative, Martin Zanghi with USM and Therese Cahill-Low with the DHHS Office of Child and Family Services will join in a discussion about young adults who "age out" of Foster Care. What becomes of young people with no permanent family connections? What needs to happen to give them a better chance in life? And, how does new research about the brain apply to them?
