May is National Foster Care Month......
A time to recognize the foster parents, volunteers, policymakers, child welfare professional and others who work to help children in foster care.
Each one of us can play a part; we have the power to do something positive that will change a lifetime for a young person in foster care. They need – and deserve – caring adults who love and support them. Foster Parents provide love on a daily basis. They are a key part of enhancing the lives of children and youth.
It is a time to raise awareness about the urgent needs of these young people and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved – as foster or adoptive parents, volunteers, mentors, employers or in other ways.
