How to reduce the number of teens aging out of foster care

Season 2024 Episode 176 | 5m 07s

More than 400,000 children in the U.S. are living in foster care. Each year, nearly 20,000 become adults and are left without the support of a guardian or the government. John Yang speaks with Darcy Olsen, CEO of the Center for the Rights of Abused Children, about a pilot project in Arizona designed to help teenagers in foster care find safe and permanent homes before they age out of the system.
