The Day I Age Out

Every year, over 600 Washington State youth “age out” of the foster care system. They leave the protections of the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) and the families and homes they have been living in — regardless of their readiness to negotiate the transition. One in five will become homeless after age 18.
