Invest in the life of A child
Today we are witnessing a growing need for homes for children in foster care. According to the US Health and Human Services’ National Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System, the number of children in foster care who are waiting to be adopted is on rise. The most recent federal count shows a troubling increase in the number of children in the US foster care system: 396,966 in 2012 vs. 442,995 in 2016. More than 123,000 of these children cannot safely return to their birth parents or relatives and are waiting to be adopted.
Due to the opioid epidemic, the number of children needing homes is expected to grow significantly. A strong adoption workforce will be essential to help find loving adoptive homes for children affected by the epidemic if and/or when these children become available for adoption.
