Short description: 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Children and Family Services Act and the  Emancipation      
   of  Mature  Minors  Act.  Changes the short title of the latter Act to      
   the Emancipation of Minors Act. Provides for the partial  emancipation      
   of  homeless minors.  Authorizes the Department of Children and Family      
   Services to license youth transitional  housing  programs  to  provide      
   services,   shelter,   or   housing  to  homeless  minors.   Effective      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          225 ILCS 10/2.24 new                                                 
        Amends the Child Care Act of 1969 to add a definition  of  "youth      
   transitional  housing  facility".   In  the Emancipation of Minors Act      
   (new  short  title),  provides  that  an  order  granting  custody  or      
   guardianship of a child to  the  Department  of  Children  and  Family      
   Services  may  not  be  terminated  or  modified  for  the  purpose of      
   obtaining emancipation of the child as a homeless  minor  (instead  of      
   providing  that  no  child  may  be  terminated  from  DCFS custody or      
   guardianship for the purpose  of  obtaining  emancipation).   Provides      
   that  nothing  in the Emancipation of Minors Act relieves any State or      
   local agency of any obligation imposed by law to provide  services  or      
   assistance to any eligible child or youth.
