2020 was the first full year for the Foster Youth to Independence initiative (FYI), which helps secure stable housing and self-sufficiency services for young adults aging out of foster care. This week’s podcast was recorded live on Zoom in early December, and features a discussion about FYI’s first year and what comes next as the initiative recently became enshrined into law. We’re joined by Ruth White and Jamole Callahan, two chief architects of FYI, and Love Williams, an early participant in the initiative. Reading RoomTrump Administration Approves Vouchers for Housing After Foster Carebit.ly/3q6YpchBen Carson Unveils Major Stable Housing Initiative for Former Foster Youthbit.ly/3odHqUSIn One Year, Homelessness Prevented for Hundreds of Former Foster Youthbit.ly/3nrV2e3Last-Minute Spending Deal Includes Boosts for Child Welfarebit.ly/3rJJt5kBehind the Stats: Mark Courtney on His Newest Study on Transition-Age Foster Youth in Californiabit.ly/2JXVvXV
