Proposition 63: Is the Mental Health Services Act Reaching
California's Transition Age Foster Youth?

On January 25, 2010, the Children's Advocacy Institute (CAI) released a report grading California counties on the extent to which they are using Proposition 63 funds to benefit Transition Age Foster Youth. The report found that 26 counties, home to over 78% of California’s Transition Age Foster Youth, received a failing grade. Seven more counties, home to an additional 15% of the state’s Transition Age Foster Youth, received a D. These grades mean that over 90% of California’s Transition Age Foster Youth live in counties that either do not have Prop. 63 programs serving them, or whose Prop. 63 programs lack adequate capacity to meet their needs.
