Roots & Wings provides young adults who age out of the foster care system in New Jersey with safe housing, educational support, counseling, and life skills in order to empower them toward self-sufficiency.
Approximately 58% of aged-out youth have a high school education by the age of 19, compared to 87% of a national comparison group of non-foster youth.
