Foster care affects thousands of children and families, as well as society as a whole. Child welfare issues arise in families of every race, ethnicity, culture, income and age group. Children and youth are placed in foster care when their parents or guardians are no longer able to ensure their wellbeing. These young people need stable, loving care until they can either safely reunite with their families or establish other lifelong relationships. Your donation will help ease the burden on these foster families and provide foster children with the educational tools needed to excel in school and beyond.
