Foster America in the New York Times

Read the New York Times op-ed by Foster America’s founder and Executive Director Sherry Lachman regarding the plight of children in foster care.  She calls on philanthropists, advocates, corporations, and professionals to help modernize the child welfare system, improving outcomes for kids and reducing longer-term burdens on our social service infrastructure.

It turns out that our child welfare system is a kind of patient zero for the crises overwhelming our other social service organizations.
