This article highlights four organizations that supported a foster youth as she aged out of the system, failed out of college, and became homeless: the Right-Way Organization that works with California foster youth ages 18-24 who are considered aged out of the system, the National Foster Youth Institute that provide job shadowing and internships to allow alumni of foster care and foster youth to prepare for the workforce, United Friends of the Children that provides housing through its Pathways program for 18-36 months, and Stepping Forward L.A., that provides healthy, supportive, an creative guidance in the transition after care.
