AB-1615 Requires Housing Plans for Foster Youth
Friday, January 28th, 2022

On January 2nd, AB-1615 was passed, requiring California counties to report a foster youth’s housing plan to a judge before they exit the system. Every year, hundreds of young adults who age out of foster care in California end up homeless, which leaves them vulnerable to things like sexual abuse, exploitation, violence, illness, and joblessness. This new law, which was co-sponsored by the Children’s Advocacy Institute and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, is projected to help prevent homelessness among this vulnerable group of young adults.
