Policy Brief, February 15, 2017, Supporting Youth in Foster Care: Research-Based Policy Recommendations for Executive and Legislative Officials in 2017. http://childtrends.org
Since 1996, the goal of Broad Street Children's Foundation is to help change the way America cares for our children. Founded by former residents of the Virginia Home for Boys in Richmond, VA, we are dedicated to the support of children's homes. Children's Homes that do an exemplary job of caring for and raising children whom have found themselves deprived of a loving and nurturing home environment.
According to childtrends.org "The number of children entering foster care has increased in recent years...' and that 'Children who experience foster care tend to exhibit more behavioral and emotional problems, physical and mental health challenges, and poorer educational outcomes than children who do not."
Broad Street Children's Foundation supports self-sustaining children's homes across the United States that actively foster the development of strong, well-rounded children in their care. Whether the outcome is adoption, reunification, or independent living, we strongly believe every child can succeed in life regardless of their circumstances if they are given the right tools. With your help, we can give children's homes across America the support needed to help end the generational cycle of poverty, abuse and violence that affects so many children today.
