Graduate students of New York University’s News and Documentary program spent part of a semester documenting the struggles and successes of people and families who endure life in the foster care system. On this website, you’ll find their stories, in print and video format.

Click on the “FOSTER CARE: Family Tree” to view these stories in a format which breaks them down into three categories:

“The Vicious Cycle” follows stories of parents and kids as they fight to remain together.

“Breaking The Cycle” follows stories of foster kids and their potential parents.

“Aging Out” follows stories of adolescent and young adult foster kids who are preparing to face the world once they age out of the system their 21st birthday.
