This article provides information on CalYOUTH, a study that evaluates the impact of the California Fostering Connections to Success Act on outcomes during the transition to adulthood for foster youth. The study examines whether extending foster care past age 18 influences the transition to adulthood, factors that influence the types of support youth receive, and how living arrangements and other services that result from extended foster care influence the relationship between extending care and youth outcomes. Links are provided to 18 reports from CalYOUTH.
