Foster youth are diagnosed with PTSD at twice the rate of U.S. military veterans. Also, 40% of foster care youth who aged out of the foster care system have experienced homelessness during the past two years since leaving foster care.

Employment success for former foster youth is low - 46% compared to 80% of the general population. What's more saddening is that former foster youth end up living in poverty - earning less than $14,000 a year, while the average earnings of the general population are over $32,000. Can you survive earning $14k a year?

Daisy Gonzales is a remarkable woman. She entered foster care at age 2, left foster care at 17, enrolled in college at 18, had 3 jobs during school, and earned a Ph.D. Now she is California's new acting community colleges chancellor. Amazing! “I survived many different systems that were not built to help me succeed, from foster care to being an English-language learner to being a first-generation college student."

California's new acting chancellor is optimistic for the future of the community colleges despite the coronavirus pandemic and enrollment losses.

Foster kids move around often, which affects their social skills and ability to create and maintain friendships. As a result, isolation becomes part of their lives. Consider ways that you can support foster kids in your community.

"Kids in foster care can feel disconnected from other kids their age because of what they're going through, so it's important to help them experience as much normalcy as possible." This will help them be successful in school, jobs, friendships, and their future well-being.

Swimming, attending camp, and participating in sports are something that many youngsters in the foster system miss. Many do not get the chance to experience these sorts of summertime activities. Being removed from their home and placed in the child welfare system because their family is in crisis, t...

Many of us are fortunate to have family vacations during the summer. However, there are many youth in foster care who don't get the opportunity to experience a vacation. Let's work together to help foster youth be successful during and after foster care so they can take many vacations in the future.

Sia is amazing. More people need to adopt youth who are aging out of the system, so they could have a forever family and support system.

In an interview with SiriusXM, the typically private singer Sia, 44, confirmed she adopted two children last year that were aging out of foster care.

This is why current and former foster youth need everyone's support.

May is Foster Care Awareness Month and we want you to think about the 400,000+ children and youth in the foster care system. These vulnerable children and youth are often forgotten and not paid attention to from society. Every month should be Foster Care Awareness Month because these kids always need our support - yours and ours. Without our support, it will be difficult for them to have a successful future.

Most foster children will not suffer the dire health effects of the Coronavirus, but too many of them will become secondary victims. While social isolation is critical to preventing the virus’ spread, it can have devastating effects on vulnerable children and families. Kids with high incidences of adverse childhood experiences are challenging to care for in normal circumstances. Add in canceled therapy appointments, no respite help from babysitters or family members, along with working and schooling from home, and foster families are suddenly at a breaking point.

“Can you help?” the social worker asked. “We have a kid with nowhere to go. I’m worried she might run away. She knows we don’t have any good foster family

Timothy Dennis, a former foster care youth, talks about his current situation and advocates for current foster youth. Since he's been at home for the quarantine his depression has gotten worse. He says that "young people who have exited foster care need someone they can call to ask for help, and they need someone checking in with them to see if they are OK." Looking into the future, he wonders whether he'll be able to go back to school again in the fall.

Congress should increase support for the Chafee Foster Care Independence Program, which provides flexible funding to meet youths' needs.

Amazing success story! Jerricha Hoskins, the founder and CEO of one of the fastest-growing Black-owned hair care brands, Arcani Coil Care, used to be in foster care and lived in homeless shelters.

Foster students who are suspended from school or attend multiple high schools are more likely to struggle in college, according to a new report. “If you move the student or transfer them many times, it affects their downstream success.”

New research finds these students had lower grade point averages than their peers because of barriers they faced in high school.

Last Saturday, our foster youth had the opportunity to job shadow at Seasons 52. They had a great time learning about the restaurant industry and the different job opportunities. Our youth shadowed the staff and got hands on experience in the kitchen - check out the pics. Thank you so much Seasons 52 for giving our youth this great opportunity.

We love our job! Last week, we received a wonderful email from one of our foster youth:
.....that is my goal. I will let you know once I achieve this!

Thank you for taking the time to take me to the Air Force today. It has made things seem much more doable now. Having so many options is so great, but it was starting to seem stressful for me. I have emailed the Captain and I will be sure to keep in touch with her.

Have a great Thanksgiving! Very thankful for having you to guide me through this confusing period.

With over 13,000 children in foster care in Tennessee and Virginia, finding homes for our area's most vulnerable children is already challenging enough. But state agencies have an even more difficult time finding home for teenagers entering the system. While 95 percent of children under the age of 12 are placed with foster families, only 58 percent of teens are placed with foster families, according to data from the National Foster Youth Institute in 2017.

"I know that when people think about foster care they think to themselves 'I'd like to get a baby,'" Paulson said. "We really need people to step up and say 'I can love on a 14-year-old."

Each year, more than 4 million young people in the U.S. experience some form of homelessness. A new report states that housing instability starts when they're young, and under specific conditions -such as earlier disruptions of home and stability due to family conflict or entering foster care (44% identified their entrance into foster care as the beginning of their housing instability).

Each year, more than four million young people in the United States experience some form of homelessness. Identifying exactly when and why that happens could open the door to better solutions.
