LEGISLATIVE DEVELOPMENT: SOCIAL ACTION

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.  

 NY STATE SENATE BILL S7720 :

Introduced by Senator Kevin Parker of the 21th district in Brooklyn, NY, this Bill is in

relation to establishing a program for financial transitional living services for foster

children. The office of children and family services shall establish a program to assist foster

children in the care, custody or guardianship of an authorized agency to achieve financial

security and independence as the children transition into independent living.
