One in 184 children in the U.S. are in the foster care system, meaning a child enters care every two minutes. Approximately 51 percent of these youth will return to their families, 21 percent will become available for adoption, and nine percent will age out without the safety of a family or home.
Join SAFY in our Mission to Preserve Families and Secure Futures, and help us provide care that allows them to thrive and experience success in their future because they are prepared to deal with life's challenges and live independently. Learn more >
