Why It Matters?
Let’s start with the why.
Currently, 4 million kids touch the child welfare system in the United States.
are already in the
foster care system.
1 in 4
children need meal
assistance every year
are confirmed abused or
neglected each day
The crisis is overwhelming and if we do nothing, research says that…
will be involved in the juvenile
justice system within 2 years
will earn a college degree
will graduate from highschool
will spend more than
five years in foster care.
But if we carry out our holistic approach
Adolescents will find belonging and provision without resorting to crime
Children and teenagers will have increased access to education
Students will have the stability to develop a love of learning
Parents will be equipped with resources to best care for children
