Support Easter Charities, a 501(c)(3) Charity
The Foster Care System is BROKEN
Many of America’s child welfare systems are badly broken — and children can suffer serious harm as a result.
Some will be separated from their siblings. Others will be bounced from one foster care placement to another, never knowing when their lives will be uprooted next. Too many will be further abused in systems that are supposed to protect them and instead of being safely reunified with their families — or moved quickly into adoptive homes — many will languish for years in foster homes or institutions.
On any given day, there are nearly 443,000 children in foster care in the United States.
In 2017, more than 690,00 spent time in U.S. foster care.
On average, children remain in state care for nearly two years, and six percent of children in foster care have languished there for five or more years.
Despite the common perception that the majority of children in foster care are very young, the average age of kids entering is 8.
In Texas alone there are currently 29,297 children in the system.
Easter Charities is a regonized 501(c)(3) tax exempt charity that supports children in the foster care system. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life and increase happiness for children.
We are trying to raise $100 per child for 10,000 of those children.
This is a one million dollar goal, but every donation gets us one step closer.
Every dollar counts. Every donor counts. Every child counts.df
