Annual foster care budget

Foster children are more likely to have experienced trauma, more likely to switch schools, and are more likely to drop out of high school.

barriers to educational success

Research indicates that children in foster care are more likely than their non-foster care peers to be absent from school, have special education needs, and to experience traumatic life events. In turn, they are also less likely to graduate high school and to attend/graduate from college.

Although 84% of foster youth express a desire to attend college, only 20% of former foster youth actually enroll in college
