Connected by 25: A Plan for Investing in the Social, Emotional and Physical Well-Being of Older Youth in Foster Care (2013)

The FCWG published its first investment agenda in 2003, Connected by 25: A Plan for Investing in Successful Futures for Foster Youth. That document called for a series of investments to support the economic success of young people transitioning from foster care at a time when issues related to education, workforce development, financial literacy, and asset development received little attention.
