WHAT IS GREAT EXPECTATIONS?
Great Expectations is a statewide initiative designed to help foster youth complete high school, gain access to a community college education and transition successfully from the foster care system to living independently.
BUILDING THE BOND:
the highest percentage of teens aging out of the foster care system without a permanent home – ranking last of all states in the U.S. Currently, over 54% of foster youth who age out of the system at 18 will become homeless or unstably housed.
