Reach This Community
Children are not the only ones
affected by foster care
Children often enter foster care with only the clothes on their back. Many sit in offices for hours while caseworkers search for a willing foster home.
As youth age out of the foster care system, many do so without the love or guidance of family and remain at risk.
Foster parents face many challenges caring for children who’ve experienced trauma. Many end up feeling physically and emotionally unprepared.
Foster care workers carry heavy caseloads that require complicated decisions, leading to high levels of burnout which affects children in care.
