Youth in foster care have educational rights and protections to support learning and achievement. Foster Youth Liaisons provide support to youth and families impacted by the child welfare or juvenile justice systems. Reach out to the Mental Health Professional/School Social Worker at your school to learn more about resources and services for eligible students.

May is National Foster Care Awareness Month. This year the theme is "Strengthening Minds. Uplifting Families."
