Shed Light on Foster Statistics

Society will have you believe you just aren’t working hard enough.
They’d have you believe you could have changed the course of your life if only you put your head down, shut up, and get to work, but when you are a child and society forgets to provide the tools you need to live a healthy, happy life, not enough people are talking about solutions.
When grown up’s struggle with mental illness, drug addiction, or financial troubles many times they do so alone, but often times they can recover with help.
Children cannot shield themselves from the damage adults cause by not providing healthy, happy homes, and environments children can thrive in.
Many of these children spend years undoing the traumas. Those same years they should be growing into adulthood, learning to provide for themselves, creating long lasting relationships with friends, and mentors, those are the years they spend tortured by fears, anxieties, and traumas of a life they had to endure.
It’s no wonder the statistics are as they show. We are begging these children to grow in unfruitful environments with no resources. How can we change the trajectory of these lives? While we aim to provide resources and financial support to #fosterkids the best way to prevent child abuse and neglect is to strengthen families. Here are some ideas for those who want to help in their own community’s.
  • Donate children’s clothing, furniture, and toys for use by another family. (post free items on your facebook market and. neighborhood pages.
  • Offer to babysit
  • Help a neighbor with yard work or any excess cleanup.
  • offer to pickup groceries or make a store run.
  • If you’re an employer or manager offer a flexible schedule.
