The California Connected by 25 Initiative (CC25I) was a six-year initiative led by the Stuart Foundation and Walter S. Johnson Foundation to transform county child welfare practice and improve outcomes in key areas of the lives of foster youth ages 14 through
24. Developed to fundamentally change the trajectory for youth emancipating from foster care, grants were provided to child welfare departments in Fresno, Glenn, Humboldt, Orange, San Francisco, Santa Clara, Solano, and Stanislaus counties to develop community partnerships, engage and empower youth, and collect and evaluate data. Through the course of the initiative, the county sites were able to improve education, permanency, housing, and other critical outcomes for transition age foster youth, ultimately increasing their opportunities and ability to succeed in life.
