Question & Response option changes to the Foster Youth Status question

 

Change to the Pop-Up Help Text for “Court-Ordered Foster Care” and “Exited Foster Care”

Foster Youth Status / Residency

Priority registration eligibility for foster youth is now 16 years of age, rather than 18 years of age. 

Therefore, a change was made to two of the response options in the Foster Youth Status question based on legislation update (SB 906) extending the age of eligibility for existing foster care from 18 years of age to 16 years of age. 

  1. The following changes were made to response options (2) and (5).

They now read as follows:

2 = I exited the foster care system on or after my 16th birthday.

5 = I exited the foster care system before my 16th birthday.

See change specification: 2019-04: Update Foster Youth Question Per Legislation SB906

 

  1. Changes were also made to the pop-up Help text information for two hyperlinks in the Foster Youth Status question:

The "Have you ever been in Court Ordered Foster Care?" question link opens the following pop-up help:

 

Court-Ordered Foster Care

You have been in foster care if you were removed from your biological family through an order by a court, which can include placement with foster parents, in a group home, or with relatives/extended family members. If you were living with relatives you must have been placed through the foster care system by an order of the court.

Foster Care includes, but is not limited to, placement in out-of-home care under the supervision of the Juvenile Probation Department. As long as you were placed within the foster care system by order of a court, you were in foster care. Having a legal guardian does not necessarily mean that you have been in foster care. If you need assistance with determining whether you were in foster care, you can contact the California Foster Care Ombudsman's office at (877) 846-1602 or fosteryouthhelp@dss.ca.gov.

 

The "When did you exit foster care?" link renders a help pop-up which reads:

Foster Youth Exit Cases

Reasons for exiting foster can include adoption, entering legal guardianship, reunification with parent(s), emancipation at age 18, or disqualification or voluntary exit after age 18.

Not Sure

If you need assistance with determining when you exited foster care, you can contact the California Foster Care Ombudsman's office at (877) 846-1602 or fosteryouthhelp@dss.ca.gov

Add Clarifying Language to the Parent/Guardian Information Section to Support Foster Youth Minors

Parent/Guardian Information (Dependency Status)

To support foster youth minors who are unsure of which option to select in the Parent/Guardian Information section, a new option was added to the section which asks, "One of the statements below is true about me" to minimize the risk of incorrectly determining their residency status.

The Parent/Guardian Information section now reads as follows:

At least one of the following statements is true about me

I am or have been married

I am legally emancipated

I do not have a living parent or guardian

I was in foster care at any time after my 13th birthday

As of <rdd>, I will be on active duty in the armed services

As of <rdd>, I will have been self-supporting for at least one year

None of the statements above is true about me

Also, a new Help pop-up box was added to this section that aligns to the hyperlink/words "foster care" - which appears in the new bulleted statement added above.
