California San Diego Assemblyman Todd Gloria announced a bill that guarantees transgender foster children "access to gender-affirming health care and gender-affirming behavioral health services" such as counseling to cope with gender identity issues or gender confirmation surgery.

This podcast, developed by the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute addresses using multiple strategies to address barriers that child welfare agencies experience to achieve reduced turnover, build staff capacity, enhance leadership skills, improve outcomes and reduce costs.

House of Representatives approved House Bill 2530 to extend health care benefits for former foster youth. This bill will allow for continued coverage in the integrated managed health care plan following 12 months following reunification with their parents or guardians.
