Foster Change 2022
There are huge problems with the foster care systems. Kids are being ripped away from homes; they experience an array of different traumas, behaviorally and manually they struggle, and their general well-being is compromised. I propose a “Kin-First” Bill where agencies make it their first priority to keep the children with relatives or people they know well. This will reduce trauma, improve their well-being and help them grown behaviorally and mentally stronger.
Why is this important?
The kids that are in the foster care system are the kids who the future generation. They will be the ones to lead and teach the generation after them. They need to be cared for, and the best way for these kids to thrive is to be integrated into society with a stable and loving home supporting them!
