Every child deserves a loving home.
There are 5,356 children in the Virginia foster care system (October 2018).
544 of these children are in the Metro NoVa area.
Every child is designed to thrive in the context of family. Central to their core development is the need for love, connection, and belonging.
In a time of crisis, children are innocent victims and are stripped of those developmental needs. The long term effects are devastating. Check the statistics for the number of people who are trafficked, incarcerated, and who don't finish school, and you'll find a high percentage of those people have been in foster care.
