FCP Advocacy

The Foster Care Project works to improve the quality of
the lives of children and young people who have been
removed from the custody of their parents to the custody
of the state. Far too many of these children and young
people are are harmed by the social structures created to
protect and nurture them. Changing public policy and the
systems which govern and control them can change the
quality of their lives. These are all our children; we must
be their advocates. Join us in this endeavor.
