Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children & Juvenile Law Center’s Third Transition Age Youth Fact Sheet 

Together with the Juvenile Law Center, the Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children (PPC) are championing policy reforms for older youth in the foster care system and have produced several resources to articulate the needs of this population. This week PPC released their third fact sheet in a series about Transition Age Youth, which seeks to educate policymakers on ensuring foster youth successfully transition to adulthood. In the coming weeks and months, PPC will work with their partners in the legislature to advance legislation to enhance permanency services for these youth. To date, Rep. Karen Boback, Chair of the House Children and Youth Committee, has filed a co-sponsor memo to introduce the legislation that would enact these needed reforms.
