About a third of Pennsylvania’s foster care system is made up of older children about to age out of the program.
The challenges those young adults face was the topic of a hearing by the “House Children and Youth Committee” Tuesday.
They say those adults leave the system and aren’t supported by a family.
Some lawmakers are now urging others to pass bills they say would help.
Bills discussed at the hearing would create programs to help those foster children get a driver’s license and access to higher education.
