The resource guide for young adults exiting the foster care system
The purpose of this graduate project was to create a website that would provide resources for young adults leaving foster care, in San Joaquin County. The goal of the project was to provide supports and resources necessary for youth leaving care to achieve independence. The website also provides information to those young adults about the process, requirements, and benefits of AB 12. AB 12 is the California Fostering Connections to Success Act (CDSS, 2012). The primary resources included in this project consisted of tools that would assist young adults with everyday life, such as housing, food, medical, and job resources. The intent of this project was to provide a guide for youth leaving care, as there are very limited resources available in the San Joaquin County for this population.
