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.
