Amends the Children and Family Services Act. Requires the Department of Children and Family Services to assist youth in care in identifying and obtaining documents necessary to function as an independent adult prior to the closure of the youth's case to terminate wardship under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that the necessary documents shall include, but not be limited to: State identification card or driver's license; social security card; medical records; educational records; and other documents. Provides that if a court orders that the wardship of a youth in care be terminated and all proceedings under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 respecting the youth in care finally closed and discharged, the Department shall ensure that the youth in care has a copy of the court's order. Provides that a court shall find that it is in the minor's best interest to continue wardship of a minor if the Department of Children and Family Services has not made reasonable efforts to ensure that the minor has documents necessary for adult living. Provides that it shall not be in the minor's best interest to terminate wardship of a minor over the age of 18 who is in the Department's guardianship if the Department has not made reasonable efforts to ensure that the minor has documents necessary for adult living.
