Abstract: This study utilized David Gil's framework to politically analyze the California Fostering Connections to Success Act of 2010. The unfavorable outcomes for the youth were evident since the passing of Independent Living Initiative in 1986 and the Foster Care Independence Act in 1999. After 25 years, history continues to reflect the harsh reality, challenges, and poor outcomes in various domains such as education, socioeconomic status, housing, criminal involvement, and utilization of public aid as youth transitioned to self sufficiency. The Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act became a law in 2008 and revolutionized the child welfare policies and programs with the goal of enhancing the outcomes of the welfare of the children and by extending the foster care services for the young adults in foster care ages 18 to 21. This important piece of legislation is optional for each state and California elected to participate by passing the California Fostering to Success Act also known as Assembly Bill 12 in October 2010. This study delved into the problems and challenges youth often experienced during transition from the child welfare system, the relevant legislations promoting better outcomes for our former foster youth, the significance of A.B. 12, the anticipated outcomes for the young adults in foster care, the impact and implications on social work practice, and lastly, the importance of future research.

This chapter provides a brief overview of the book highlighting the modest progress from child welfare to child well-being re?ected in these chapters, and the parallel movement in Kahn’s career and research, as his scholarship developed over the years. It then moves to explore the relationship between two overarching themes, child and family policy stressing a universal approach to children and social prot- tion stressing a more targeted approach to disadvantaged and vulnerable individuals including children and the complementarity of these strategies. Introduction To a large extent Alfred J. Kahn was at the forefront of the developments in the ?eld of child welfare services (protective services, foster care, adoption, and family preservationandsupport). Overtimehisscholarshipmovedtoafocusonthebroader policy domain of child and family policy and the outcomes for child wellbeing. His work, as is true for this volume, progressed from a focus on poor, disadvantaged and vulnerable children to a focus on all children. He was convinced that children, by de?nition, are a vulnerable population group and that targeting all children, empl- ing a universal policy as a strategy would do more for poor children than a narrowly focused policy targeted on poor children alone, As we ?rst argued more than three decades ago (Not for the Poor Alone; “Universalism and Income Testing in Family Policy”), one could target the most disadvantaged within a universal framework, and this would lead to more successful results than targeting only the poor.

Abstract: Foster youth leaving the child welfare system have been shown to have poorer outcomes in educational attainment, employment, and housing when compared to adults in the general population. To address the needs of youth exiting foster care, California passed The Fostering Connections to Success Act in 2010, AB 12. This legislation sought to address the unmet needs of foster youth, by extending foster care services until the age of 21. The author utilized David Gil's (1992) policy framework to analyze the purpose and objectives of this policy, review the intended and unintended effects of this legislation, and provide implications for future research, policy and practice.

Abstract: Foster youth exiting the child welfare system will have poorer outcomes such as, low educational attainment, poor employment, high criminal activity, homelessness, and higher rate of public assistance when compared to non-foster care youth. The purpose of this thesis is to look at the values, theoretical goals, implications, and the outcomes of services outlined in the California Fostering Connections to Success Act of 2010, or Assembly Bill (A.B.) 12. A.B. 12 was designed to help foster care youth who reached the age of majority (18+) and extend their foster care services to age 21. By analyzing A.B. 12, this author will take a take a look at what the lawmakers intended, the results of the last five years, and what we can learn for future legislation.

This book examines the attainment gap between foster youth and their peers. Specifically focusing on post-secondary access and success for foster youth, Gross points out the challenges foster youth face in the primary and secondary school context, such as being less likely to complete high school. These barriers to former foster youth continue once enrolled in post-secondary education, and can manifest as lack of institutional support, financial barriers, and limited to no familial support. The author discusses what policy makers and practitioners need to know to better support the educational attainment of former foster youth.
