Thank you for taking the time to get informed and involved in child welfare reform in Pennsylvania. It is crucial that we work together to bring much-needed change for Pennsylvania children and youth in the foster care system. It is with support like yours that we can we make this possible. Make your voice heard.
By speaking out, we can work together to ensure that all of our children in the foster care system find a permanent, or forever, family to call their own. In Pennsylvania alone, nearly 18,000 children are in the system on any given day and another 1,100 age out into unknown circumstances every year.
Together with Casey Family Programs, a national operating foundation dedicated to improving the lives of children in foster care, and our project partner, we are working to impact change throughout our state.
Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children has been successful in past advocacy efforts, but one thing is for sure - we can't do it without you! We look forward to working with you as we continue to forge ahead on these important issues.
