Many seem to view the foster care crisis as something that exists “out there somewhere”.

  • In every state, including yours;
  • In every county, including yours;
  • In every urban area, including yours;
  • In every community, including yours.

 

What about the state in which you live?  Let’s break it down.

If you live in:

  • Connecticut-there are approximately 4,700 youth in foster care;
  • Maine-there are approximately 1,600 youth in foster care;
  • Massachusetts-there are approximately 9,500 youth in foster care;
  • New Hampshire-there are approximately 850 youth in foster care;
  • Rhode Island-there are approximately 2,000 youth in foster care;
  • Vermont-there are approximately 1,000 youth in foster care.

 

In short, the foster care crisis is a local need that exists right where you live. In your “backyard” are children who need a safe, nurturing family-and, just perhaps, that family is yours.
