May is Foster Care Month
National Foster Care Month is an important time to raise awareness of issues related to foster care and to celebrate those, like our foster parents, who are dedicated to serving our children, youth, and families. This year, the Children’s Bureau collaborated with parents, guardians, and young people with lived experience to develop its focus for the month on mental well-being. As a result, this year's theme is "Strengthening Minds, Uplifting Families." We encourage everyone check out the mental health resources at National Foster Care Month - Child Welfare Information Gateway and visit our Community engagement toolkit if you are looking for facts and messages to raise awareness in our community.
