Foster Youth Returns Home as Teen

Listen to this most interesting interview of a former foster youth, David, who got permanency when he was a teen by being returned home to his mom after nearly six years in care. David was placed in group care as an seven year old and didn’t return home until he was nearly 13. He and his two brothers and sister were placed into a group care setting in Peekskill with the St. Joseph’s agency. The conversation compared and contrasted the experience of foster care in the late sixties and early seventies and that of today. This is an interesting conversation about how the foster care system worked for one youth, David, who got his permanent home as a teen by returning home with his siblings to their mother. Today David is a community organizer and a Director of a social services program in Brooklyn. He is a great role model in the social services community.
