National Foster Care Month

Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity for people nationwide to focus attention on the year-round needs of youth in foster care and encourage more people to get involved in their lives. We celebrate those who make a difference in the lives of the 75,000 children in California's foster care system. More information on National Foster Care Month.
