There aren't enough foster families or adoptive parents to begin to absorb the kids that would need them. There isn't now. A very high percentage of the young homeless are products of foster homes that "expired" on them.

Reminds me of the time Reagan pushed for "deinstitutionalization" of many of those residing in mental health facilities. Reagan said local facilities would grow to absorb those released. Well he never pushed Congress to fund those facilities and the local governments didn't have the funds, either, so the number of mentally ill homeless grew.

Some solution.
