21 is just the beginning. Health, Dental, EAP and other transitional housing supports should be extended to until at least age 25. This is when coverage under parents plans supports children and children of the state should be treated at least as fairly.

I believe in this cause. They need the additional time for help to prepare for their future and education if that is what they desire.

Youth in care need the help to learn the basic life necessities. Help make them successful young adults.
