LEGISLATIVE DEVELOPMENT

Foster Care Unplugged has been working with local and state  politicians to develop a Bill that will help reduce the likelihood of homelessness and poverty for youth aging out of foster care. This Bill will help to develop a trust fund that will offer alternatives to such challenges by allowing youth to have more concrete housing and career options.
