In a conversation with Rob Harter on the Nonprofit Leadership podcast, Rita Soronen, President & CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, talks about the urgent need to find forever families for the rising number of children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States.
She also dispels myths surrounding youth in foster care and discusses ways to get involved to ensure every child has a permanent home and a loving family.
“We need people willing to step up and say, ‘It’s not good enough in my community that a child is in foster care for five years or that a child turns 18 and leaves the system without a family,” Rita says.
Listen to the full conversation:
No child should face the COVID-19 crisis or any other without the love and support of a permanent family. Give now to help find adoptive homes for children waiting in foster care.
