The County of Los Angeles has more than 32,000 youth in the foster care system. That's not a typo. Los Angeles has more foster youth than the next highest STATE population, NY.
50% of foster youth will be homeless, incarcerated, and/or institutionalized upon leaving the foster care system.
42% of foster youth will not graduate high school
Only 3% of Foster Youth go to college.
Because they are changing placements so often, Foster youth can attend anywhere from 7-20 schools while in care.
80% of Death Row inmates have been in foster care.
YOU CAN HELP!!!
We'll work with your schedule.
