Texas Lawmakers Urge For Foster Care System Reform

There is a high rate of children who go into foster care who age out and have a very high likelihood of homelessness or crime,” [Chrystal Smith, executive director of Austin-based Foster Village] said. “A lot of it comes back to foster care­—there could have been a difference made while those children were in foster care versus pouring resources [against] human trafficking and homelessness. Those are worthy causes, but if we can kind of intercede earlier when they are in foster care, that’s a great opportunity to help potentially prevent some of those problems.”
