AB12 http://kalw.org en New law leaves some foster youth hanging http://kalw.org/post/new-law-leaves-some-foster-youth-hanging <p>A new law, California Fostering Connection to Success Act or AB 12, extends support for foster children until age 20. But because the law is being phased in, youth who turn 19 this year will not receive support until January 1, 2013. David Colby, a former foster child who had been accepted into UC Berkeley, may only be covered by Contra Costa County until August. Until then, he could be on his own.
