A Call to Change the Statistics for Foster Youth Aging Out of Care

The statistics of foster youth when they age out of care are disheartening. Rita Soronen calls out that we, as a nation, need to do more.

"It is our duty as a nation to end this cycle. We made promises to these 101,000 children in foster care waiting to be adopted that we would find them safe, supportive homes. We must take the lead and work harder to do that. "

At FosterClub, our mission is to change those statistics by providing education, peer and community connections, inspirational stories and representation in political arena for young people in and from foster care. Read Rita Soronen's opinion article for CNN here...
