A selection of recent reports on children in the foster care system from Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago:
- Does extending stay in foster care until age 21 result in better postsecondary educational outcomes for youth?
- How well do employment readiness programs address the training needs of youth in foster care? A look at the administrative data from the Community Assistance Programs (CAPs) program in Chicago, where just over 1/4 of the 298 participants completed one hour of their subsidized employment, sets up critical evaluation questions around engaging youth in job training and placement activities.
