The Receiving Home is often full, and the County Centralized Placement Unit that is housed there has no homes to move the foster children. We have all our foster homes full, and although we have some new parents coming on board, we do not have near enough to help.
The second problem is that there are few if any foster families who want older children because these children are so beat down, left out and left behind, they often present difficult behaviors to deal with.
The third problem is that those running the sex trades and trafficking wait around and easily convince the vulnerable children they have the answer and will make their lives better.
There is an answer - WELL TRAINED FOSTER PARENTS!! We would love to train you and partner with you to help you help these children. Hurry - the children are in danger every day.
