After some research, she discovered that there were nearly 400,000 children in the foster care system each day in the United States. Out of those children, nearly 61% would age out of the system without having a place to live, 50% would end up incarcerated within 2 years of aging out, and almost 80% of people on death row are former foster alumni.
