May is National Foster Care Month—a time to acknowledge the foster parents, family members, volunteers, mentors, policymakers, child welfare professionals, and other members of the community, including Strength United’s own staff and volunteers, who help children and youth in foster care find permanent homes and connections.
You can learn more about Strength United’s work supporting foster families on our Services page.
