All young people need help as they move from living with their family to living on their own. Those in foster care have the same needs as youths living with their biological families, although after they exit foster care those youths often may not have the same resources as other young people. This lack of resources becomes especially critical during the following year or two post-foster care, roughly the 18-20-year-old age range.
