Here at Rose Leaf Foundation, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Each year more than 23,000 children age out of the US foster care system. Statistics show that only 3% of young people who have aged out of the foster care system earn a college degree. It has also been reported 7 out of 10 girls who age out of the foster care system will become pregnant before the age of 21. Currently, South Carolina ranks 38 out of 50 for Child Well-being. Achieving self-sufficiency, post-secondary education/training, stable housing, job security, and maintaining optimal levels of wellness are just some of the issues that young people of this population face.
