Foster Youth & COVID-19: A Research Study

Posted by The Field Center for Children's Policy Practice & Research on April 28, 2020

The Field Center for Children’s Policy, Practice & Research at the University of Pennsylvania is conducting a research study on the experiences of older youth in foster care and those who recently exited foster care during the COVID19 pandemic related to housing, food security, education, employment, finances, health, and personal connections. Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 23 and either in, or aged out of, foster care. Participation in this study involves taking an online survey (approximately 10 minutes to complete).

All survey responses will be anonymous, and participants will have the opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of twelve $25 Target gift cards. To access and/or complete the survey on Foster Youth & COVID-19, click here:
