Young adults who age out of foster care face a double whammy, says Boston College Graduate School of Social Work Associate Professor Stephanie Berzin. “They not only lose the support and services that come with foster care,” she explains, “but they also lose housing."
Berzin, who chairs GSSW’s Children, Youth, and Families concentration, co-organized a forum on campus earlier this month to discuss the issue of housing for such vulnerable young adults. The forum featured agencies and housing programs from across the state with a record of success in serving this at-risk population. More than 100 representatives from the practice, academic, and policy areas of the human and social services fields attended the forum.
