CDSS Celebrates National Foster Care Month

Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity to shine a light on the experiences of the more than 67,000 children and youth under 18 in the foster care system.
 
The campaign raises awareness about the urgent needs of these young people and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved – as foster or adoptive parents, volunteers, mentors, employers or in other ways.
 
Celebrate foster care month and find out how you can help.
