The purpose of this study was to explore, from the perspectives of the foster parents, what services were being utilized, what assistance have been provided, and what more can be done to assist young adults in the process of transitioning from foster care to extended foster care. This study focused on the implementation process and beginning outcomes of extended foster care using the unique perspective of foster parents who currently care for a foster care young adult. This study examined San Bernardino County Department of Children and Family Services (CFS) foster parents' views on the implementation of Ecological Systems Theory (EFC). The sample size for this study consisted of ten foster parents who are working with young foster adults (non-minor dependents).
