Foster Care Facts Nearly one hundred times a day, a child in California is placed in foster care
Too often, however, the children in foster lag behind national standards in relation to the minimal care and protection we strive to achieve for children. As a result, youth in foster care often transition into adulthood without the tools and support they need to thrive.

  • in California, there are over 60,000 children in the foster care system.
  • Many children in California’s foster care system experience frequent placement changes. Children who are in foster care for 24 months

MENTORS that are kind, caring, non-judgmental and open to learn can change the trajectory of a kid in foster care.
