My Fostering Stable Housing Opportunities Act passed recently through the House Financial Services Committee.
Currently foster care youths age out of the system and into federally created homelessness. With the passage through the Financial Services Committee, this foster care bill is closer than ever to becoming law. These foster care kids have few resources to find safe, stable housing. My bill is a commonsense fix with no additional cost to the federal government that will have a huge impact for the lives of these kids. Now that it’s passed committee, I look forward to this bill coming to the full House for passage.
