“AGED-OUT: FINDING HOME”

“Aged-Out: Finding Home” is a documentary presented by VPM and produced by 19RED and Pam Hervey. The documentary provides awareness of the difficulties faced by youth who age out of Virginia’s foster care system. The film also follows the story of the advocacy teams and families who are trying to improve Virginia’s statewide care system so that youth in the foster system can have better outcomes and find permanent homes instead of aging out of the system onto the streets.
