May is Foster Care Month!

Each May we recognize National Foster Care Month to provide an opportunity to shine a light on the experiences of the more than 380,000 children and youth under 18 in the foster care system.

The campaign hopes to raise awareness about the urgent needs of these young people and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved – as foster or adoptive parents, volunteers, mentors, employers or in other ways.

Become a foster or adoptive parent. Caring families are always needed for older youth, siblings and children with special needs.
