A Social Survey of Older Youth in Out-of-Home Care: An Analysis of 237 Case Records.
San Diego County Dept. of Public Welfare, CA.
The first of the 5 reports provides general statistical information describing a defined population of older foster youths, ages 16-21, who receive Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). Personal characteristics, family situation, court involvement, out-of-home care history, education and employment records are presented. Reports 2 and 3 furnish more personal insight into the strengths and weaknesses, aspirations, experiences and relationships of 51 of the youths, as well as describing the circumstances and current experiences of 47 participating foster parents. The 4th report focuses on the social workers and their relationships with, and roles vis-a-vis, the youths, their families and their foster parents. The special report (#5) presents inconclusive data on the 3 youths, all girls, who live in group, as contrasted with foster, homes. Pertinent survey and interview forms, as well as questionnaires, are included. (TL)
