Aging Out of the System … What does that mean?

Monday, February 1st, 2016

For many minors, turning 18 is an exciting milestone. Around this age there tends to be high school graduations, celebrations with family, preparations for college, registering to vote and gaining a new sense of independence as an adult. For a large majority of youth in foster care, turning 18 means aging out of the system.
