Subject: Celebrate National Foster Care Month in May
More than 400,000 American children and youth are currently in foster care. National Foster Care Month is a time to renew our commitment to ensuring a bright future for these children and youth and celebrate all those who make a meaningful difference in their lives.
The Children's Bureau—together with its information service, Child Welfare Information Gateway, and the National Resource Center for Permanency and Family Connections—supports National Foster Care Month through a web section on the Information Gateway website. The focus of this year's web section is Achieving Well-Being With Children and Youth in Care. The web section provides resources to support child welfare professionals as they seek to build well-being postpermanency; with transitioning youth; through support in sibling connections; through support in school and community; and through trauma-informed child welfare systems.
