Reflections: Stories of Foster Care
Personal storytelling is a powerful way to connect real-life scenarios to important practice issues and raise awareness to demonstrate how the foster care system can support youth and families. Feature these stories in your State and local campaigns as a quick and easy way to enhance your message. Or use them as tools for training new child welfare professionals and recruiting and training foster parents. These stories also highlight the continuum of strategies that professionals can use to engage youth, amplify youth voice, and help build meaningful connections for all involved in foster care.
