FOSTER CARE ADOPTION
Children are placed in foster care after enduring abuse, neglect, parental drug use or other issues that made their home unsafe. And right now, more than 113,000 of those young people in the United States are waiting for someone to step forward to adopt them.
As our founder, Dave Thomas, always said,
“These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.”
You can help. Learn more and spread the word about the critical need for foster care adoption.
