Summary

Many states across America pay less to care for a foster child than a kennel charges to board and feed a dog! Please help save a childhood ~ Support America's Forgotten Foster Care Children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Today, more than half a million children in the United States are in foster care. Recent studies have shown an increase in drug abuse, child abuse, and/or neglect due to our nation's current economic crisis. Our most precious resources- our children are in desperate need of your help. America's current statistics on foster care is appalling; 90% of foster children before their 21st Birthday will be incarcerated, homeless or dead. "Please, Help Save America's Infants And Children!"

How will this project solve this problem?

Our main goal is to create state laws to help foster children and advertise on commercials and in magazines for quality foster/adopt parents and Nurse-Foster Providers as per our Assembly Bill 1133 and California's State Law # 490. Our Goal is; Through the Hearts and Hands of Nurses working together within our communities to help recruit foster parents for our Angels In Waiting. It's equally as imperative to provide truthful public information on the tragic plight of America's Foster Children

Potential Long Term Impact

Governmental statistics is estimating America will have close to one million children in foster care. There are growing numbers of medically fragile infants and children entering the foster care system. Some of these cases are attributed to epidemic drug use by pregnant women which have resulted in premature births, and children with medical and developmental complications. AIW's Nurse-Foster Provider program is addressing this issue in California, and Nationwide. Saving Countless Childhoods!
