I just heard a former foster child state that the foster parents don't care about the children in their care and my heart broke for her~My sister is a foster mom and cares for these children as she would her own. Many parents in the foster system go above and beyond. Thank you

My husband works for Children's Village in Harlem as a Life Skills Coach for kids who are aging out of Foster Care. Children's Village is a good resource.

Hi,
I checked out the covenant house web site. I could not find out how to volunteer. Can your guests explain how? Thanks.

These kids need to be prepared to how to set a budget. How to be financially independent; how to dress and talk for a job and preparation for the work environment.
