(2009) Helping Former Foster Youth Graduate from College: Campus Support Programs in California and Washington State

One notable exception is the growing number of campus support programs for young people making the transition out of foster care. Although each program is unique, they typically provide an array of financial, academic, social/emotional, and logistical (e.g., housing) supports to help former foster youth stay in school and graduate. They are currently concentrated in California or Washington State and are supported, at least in part, by private philanthropy.
