In 2015 - over 20,000 children aged-out of foster care.
The term ďaged-outĒ means that the child is having their 18th birthday - and if they were not reunified with their family or they were not adopted - they are about to become an adult citizen and will need to live, work, and create a safe place for themselves.
Statistics can be grim and show that many of the children leaving care without someone to lean on or without any help - will be more susceptible to crime, drugs, poverty, and homelessness.
Please help us to change these grim statistics and create a world for all of our children to become active and contributing citizens in our communities. Letís help children have a future.
