Stats on Foster Kids

MAY IS NATIONAL FOSTER CARE MONTH!

May is National Foster Care Awareness Month, and while we know you are ‘aware’ of the crisis facing foster children all year round, this is a special opportunity for us to share the mission with friends, family and colleagues to let them know how they can get involved.

Below are some sobering statistics, as well as ways you can get involved to help us change the trajectory of children in the foster care system. We are so thankful for your help!
