Definition and Source



(Number) Children exiting foster care

(Percent)  Exit mode as a percentage of all children exiting. In recent years CFSA has also reported the number of children exiting foster care via emancipation or the child living with other relatives (not through CFSA custody) (and, much less commonly, death of the child or transfer to another DC agency). For consistency with older data the percentages reported here only reflect children exiting foster care through either guardianship, adoption, or reunification  and not any child exiting through one of the newer categories.
