Aging Out of Foster Care

Featured Audio

Terrell Howard, 22, and ReGine Wells, 20, both lifelong Clevelanders, have aged out of foster care and have begun the hard work of making a life for themselves. Terrell spent eleven years in foster care, ReGine five. It has been a difficult road to adulthood. ReGine is now attending classes at Tri-C; Terrell will start college in August. They're both uncertain of their exact life goals, but they do know they'd like to help others like themselves.
