How You Can Help
Every day, nearly a half-million children and youth depend on foster care in America – through no fault of their own.
For kids in foster care, the state is their only parent and we need to be better parents.
- U.S. Rep. Karen Bass
It is our responsibility to make sure that our children have every opportunity to become productive citizens. But unfortunately, a disproportionate number of foster care youth end up homeless and in the juvenile-justice system.
We need to make it easier for foster youth to get an education, a job, and become self sufficient and not have homelessness or incarceration be the default.
No matter how much time you have to give, you can do something positive that will change a lifetime for a young person in foster care.
