Kids in Foster Care
There are over 400,000 children in foster care in the US. The average age of kids entering foster care is 7. More than 60% of the children spend two to five years in the system before being adopted. About 30,000 age out of the system without being adopted and research has shown that those who never find a forever family are more likely to experience homelessness, unemployment and incarceration as adults. Something to consider.
