Older youth permanency matters! Did you know that 60% of youth living in foster care in Alameda and San Francisco counties are in between the ages of 11-21? Adopting an older youth is not about giving them the childhood they never had it is about giving them a home to come back to for the rest of their lives! Find out how you can become a foster or adoptive parent by visiting us @ www.familybuilders.org or give us a phone call at (510) 536-5437.

FUN FACT...if every one of our Facebook followers donated $5 in honor of National Foster Care Month... that's over $5,000 to help children in foster care find loving, supportive permanent families.

If every one of our Facebook followers donated $5/month...we would raise more than $60,000 by the end of the year.

LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN! Make a $5 donation and share this post so we can help more children in foster care find their forever families.

LGBTQ Youth in Unstable Housing and Foster Care

A recent study by the University of Texas at Austin published in the medical journal Pediatrics shows significant overrepresentation of "LGBTQ youth in unstable housing and foster care, and disproportionate risks related to schooling, substance use, and mental health. LGBTQ youth, in general, showed poorer outcomes, which was exacerbated when they lived in unstable housing or foster care. The findings of this study point to the need for care that is affirming and respectful of youth’s sexual orientation and gender identity."
