The Impact of COVID 19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact in so many ways on most of us, but foster youth and former foster youth are among the most vulnerable.

A Hawaiian study done by HI HOPES (October 2020) found that:

  • 55% of foster youth and former foster youth experienced negative employment impact because of the pandemic; and
  • 35% did not have money for food.
