Welcome to the Transition topic group, formerly the Transition Club on FosterClub.com. More than 20,000 young people transition out of foster care every year.  If you are starting to think about life after foster care, then FosterClub's Transition Club can help you get ready for success.

New items posted to transitioning (aging out)

I often refer to this...

I often refer to this moment in my life around my 18th birthday where the family I thought would love and support me throughout my life rejected me… or so I thought. In actuality, what had happened was that we had two different ideas about what our relationship would look like going in to the future. I don’t know what I wanted from them in terms of a relationship- I had never thought about it.

Are you a young person in transit from youthdom to adulthood?

For most youth in foster care, these are uncertain times. Today more than ever, if you want to travel successfully (and safely) to life on your own, you'll need to plan for your trip.

We want to hear from YOU! The state of California is facing an economic crisis which places older youth in foster care at great risk. Read this Editorial that ran in the San Francisco Chronicle, then voice your own opinion! Here's the Editorial:

aging out

“Aging out” refers to what happens when youth reach a certain age (age 18 in most states) and are no longer eligible for support from the foster care system. Without foster care funding, many youth lose their place to live, health care coverage, connections to supportive adults, and are ill-prepared to support themselves in the adult world.
