In THP-Plus, a transitional housing program for young adults who have exited foster care, a quarter of youth who leave the program early do so involuntarily. The advocacy guide provides a roadmap for youth, attorneys, and advocates to prevent the root causes of these involuntary exits and to ensure that all of the applicable laws are followed when an exit does occur.
