    The prevalence of home-lessness in a random sample of 195 young foster children was examined.

    Those children were more likely than other foster children to have siblings in foster care and to be piaced with nonrelatives.

    Conclusions An extremely high prevalence of family homelessness was found among children in foster care.

    Policy implications of the association between family homelessness and placeme into foster care are discussed.
