Gov. Gina Raimondo says she wants to allow young people to access care and support through the state Department of Children Youth and Families up to age 21.

Each year about 70 teenagers exit DCYF care when they turn 18.

Raimondo says the commitment would allow older youth, if they choose, to live in stable housing and receive support while they're in school, in a job training program or working.
