We all have a role to play.
Everyone has a role to play.
Every. Single. One. of us has a role to play.
The experience of entering foster care can be crippling. Oftentimes, for a kid in foster care, you find yourself holding your breath because every aspect of your life has been tossed and thrown. The definition of home begins to shift as you move from house to house and school to school.
This is a reality for over 400,000 kids in foster care.
In America, 63 children age out of foster care each day. That’s 23,000 kids each year. When they turn 18, aged out youth enter adulthood with a lack of preparation and support, leading to high rates of suicide, homelessness, incarceration, and more. A system is not an adequate parent.
Everyone deserves to belong.
Every child deserves a family.
That doesn’t stop at 18.
$18 a month serves as a reminder of the 23,000 kids aging out.
When you give $18 dollars a month, you commit to remember.
You commit to seeing those in foster care, to listening to their experience, and to being a part of changing the way kids experience foster care from this moment forward.
You have an important role to play.
Join the BelongBy18 campaign and improve the experience and outcomes of kids in foster care. With your help, we can restore the sense of belonging to these vulnerable children and improve their futures.
