Q: I’m a county social worker and have a client who exited to adoption at age 16. The adoption has subsequently failed and the young woman has re-entered foster care as a non-minor dependent at the age of 19 through AB 2454. When she exits care at age 21, will she be eligible for the THP-Plus housing program for former foster youth?
A: Yes, those eligible for THP-Plus are former foster youth who have exited the foster care system on or after their 18th birthday. Because this young woman was in foster care after her 18th birthday, she will be eligible for THP-Plus.
