Even though we've helped 
over 10,000 children in foster care find families,
we still have a lot more to go. 

Currently there are:

Children in Foster Care In California
Or less will not graduate high school
Will grow up to have PTSD
Of females in foster care become pregnant by age 21
1 in 5
Foster youth will be homeless within a year of aging out when they turn 21
Of California's inmates are children formerly from foster care

Last year 34% of children who entered the foster care system were there due to parent drug use. This increase is in part, due to the opioid crisis our nation is currently experiencing.
