Youth Feedback

Researchers with Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago have interviewed more than 600 21-year-old youth about their experience with foster care and extended foster care.

We have included some of the most interesting results from the survey, and you'll get to learn more about how youth currently or formerly in foster care are doing in areas like education, housing and financial stability.

You’ll also be able to respond to some questions with your perspective and opinions.

Thank you for participating! All your answers will remain confidential.

The data will be reported only in the aggregate and no individual will be identified.
