For other youth, proper preparation for adulthood and support from caring adults helps them develop the resiliency and skills needed for success." "Reporter Martha Shirk and long-time children's advocate Gary Stangler do more than simply document the struggles of these young men and women. They call for action to provide youth in foster care the same opportunities on the road to adulthood that most of our youth take for granted - access to higher education, vocational training, medical care, housing, and relationships within their communities."--Jacket." ;
