Young Adult Outcomes of Foster Care, Justice, and Dually Involved Youth in New York City
Author(s): Center for Innovation through Data Intelligence
From the author(s): This study, funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, examined the adult outcomes of exiters of the foster care system, juvenile detention, and adult correction system, and those exiters who are dually involved in New York City via administrative data analysis. Adolescents who were discharged between 2004 and 2006 from foster care, a justice (detention or jail) system, or who were dually involved (i.e., discharged from both foster care and a justice system) were tracked via administrative data for six years after their discharge. Outcomes were measured in five domains: foster care, government benefits, homeless shelter use, hospital and health services, and justice.
