TSP Podcast: Foster Care, Part 1
May is Foster Care Awareness month!
This month I'm sharing about the foster care system. This beast of a system that cares for almost half a million kids yearly is still somewhat mysterious to those outside of it.
This will be a 3-part series...
Part 1: The What, Where & How of foster care w/ data & info;
Part 2: The Who of foster care, sharing my personal journey;
Part 3: *possible* Interview w/ a former foster youth
This is part 1. Do you know how many youth are in foster care or how many are available for adoption each year? Do you know how many foster youth "age-out" of the system each year or what their outcomes look like? Join me as I share this data (and more!) to help you understand this system and how you can get involved.
Data shared in this episode was collected from:
The AFCARS Report 2018 (Adoption & Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System
