Youth who have aged out of foster care have become alarmingly vulnerable. Most of them have virtually no support system to lean on during this crisis. They need your help today!

Before COVID-19 hit, over 50% of foster families quit within the first year due to a lack of social support. If you know a foster, adoptive, or kinship family, reach out in the following ways to show your support!

America’s Kids Belong is a 501(c)3 organization that mobilizes government, faith-based, business and creative leaders around the goal of permanency and belonging for every child. Combining grassroots and “grasstops” methods, America’s Kids Belong runs innovative initiatives in states to help ensure that every child is in a loving home by: recruiting more foster and adoptive families, engaging wrap-around support for at-risk, foster & adoptive families along the way, and helping youth who have aged out without a family reach their full potential.
