May Is Foster Care Awareness Month

Because no one makes it alone… NYFC is partnering with FosterMore to bring awareness to young people in foster care as well as the unique challenges these young people face. FosterMore is a coalition of not for profit organizations and foundations working to raise awareness of the youth in America’s foster care system.

Despite the challenges of foster care these youth have dreams, ambitions and the potential to succeed. A recent study found that 70% of foster youth plan to go to college. However, like all children, they need guidance and support. Whether that comes from a family member, mentor, friend, teacher or other member of the community, that support can make all the difference.
