May is National Foster Care Month

Date: 05/05/19

May is National Foster Care Month. There are more than 440,000 kids in foster care across the country. More than 30,000 kids are in foster care right here in Indiana. This month, we take the time to learn more about the foster care system.

There are so many people working to change the lives of foster kids and families. Thank you to foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child welfare professionals, and all others doing their part. The foster care system needs a big community.

Take this month to learn something new and spread awareness. Find ways that you can get involved at any level.
