How does the pandemic impact expectant and parenting foster youth? How much does preparing for a baby really cost? In fact, the average cost to meet basic health and safety standards before childbirth is at least $2,000. It is our collective responsibility to ensure our foster youth have what they need for safe and healthy futures – for them and their babies. Healthy Futures for Foster Youth (AB 366) will support expectant and parenting youth to meet these and other needs.
