US: A North Carolina Senator Wants to Block a Foster Care Reform Bill
Teen Vogue – December 08, 2016
Each day, there are approximately 415,000 children in foster care in the United States, according to Children’s Rights. On average, kids remain in the system for two years, and 7% remain for five or more years. In 2014 alone, more than 22,000 people aged out of foster care without permanent families – something, Children’s Rights reports, leads to a greater chance of homelessness, unemployment, or incarceration.
