Foster Kids Need a Hero

This month is a special time set aside to acknowledge, honor, and thank all the kindhearted caring individuals who help children and youth in foster care every day.
We extend a BIG thank you to all the foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child welfare professionals, and other members of our communities who are passionately helping foster kids find a forever homes and provide stability in their lives.
It’s a time when we can all renew our commitment to ensuring a bright future for the more than 437,000 children and youth in foster care, and 118,000 children waiting to be adopted.
We invite everyone to join us in taking a stand for foster kids this month, and throughout the year. It’s time to give these kids a louder voice.

Speak up for foster kids this National Foster Care Month.
There is an overwhelming need across the country to help the more than 430,000 children and youth in foster care.….and 118,000 children waiting to be adopted.
Foster children usually enter the foster care system due to abuse and trauma in their home. Neglect is the #1 reason children are removed, followed by parental drug use.
This displacement causes a unique set of emotional, social and academic challenges for them. They often experience grief, guilt, anger, sadness, loneliness, anxiety, low self-esteem, mental and physical health issues.
Thank you to all the adoptive and foster parents who open their homes and hearts to make a beautiful commitment to nurture and protect these precious children.
