Kathleen Schuster- Aging Out
Since 2007, a non-profit group known as "Computers For Kids" has been giving away laptop computers to various organizations-- like the Boys and Girls Club. And more than 2,000 of them have gone to kids aging out of Tennessee's foster care system. Whether or not the computers are actually helping these at-risk kids is debatable and hard to track. But some have found them to be an important part of the transition from life in foster care to life in the Real World. Kathleen Schuster has this report, part of WUOT's Next Wave Radio Project.
