Aging Out

Aging Out

We began our program this week with a story about faith-based social services. Here’s a great example: churches taking care of young people who need foster care but have become too old for foster homes. Foster parents can be wonderful or, in some cases, less so. But for all foster children there comes a time when they must leave, ready or not. In the language of social services, as Mary Alice Williams reports, they have “aged out.”
