May is National Foster Care Month, a time to raise awareness about the needs of the more than 400,000 children in foster care nationwide. It’s also a time to celebrate the many caring individuals across the country, including foster parents, social workers, teachers and others who share a mission of ensuring that every child has a loving home.
At The MENTOR Network, we believe that children belong in families. When they’re supported in a natural home setting, with a loving adult committed to helping them heal, they thrive. We’ve seen the life-changing impact that a loving home can have on a child. We’re committed to doing our part to ensure a bright future for every child, regardless of the challenges their family may face.
In the video and slideshow below, you will meet some of the amazing foster parents who have changed the lives of children in need. Their inspiring stories show what can happen when someone opens their home and fosters hope for a child’s future.
