Immigration Related Barriers Title PageImmigration Related Barriers and Youth in San Francisco: Issues and Challenges Specific to Child Welfare Systems


Honoring Emancipated Youth (HEY) is a San Francisco-based organization dedicated to strengthening and connecting San Francisco’s systems of support so that Bay Area youth emancipating, or “aging out” of the foster care system can enjoy a healthy transition to adulthood. HEY identifies and raises awareness around challenges affecting local current and former foster youth by bringing together a diversity of expert voices and experiences, including those of former foster youth, service providers, and other supporters, in finding solutions. As a result, supporters of foster youth are linked and informed about the challenges faced by former foster youth and gain access to hard data and expert review of policies and practices so that they can help improve outcomes.
