all kids deserve this
One of our goals is to generate 5,000,000 signatures on our petition. We feel this will authorize policy makers to do the difficult work of changing this system.

There are 750,000 displaced children in this country. These are children who are in the care of no one, who are not being raised by a family. They may live in group homes, orphanages, reformatories, foster houses, hospitals, training schools, or on the streets.
By “displaced children” we are referring to children who are not currently being cared for by at least one mature adult in a committed, lifelong relationship.
And, yes, their families often need some support, but these supports are more effective (and cheaper) than institutional care. In 2006, 53 percent of children who exited foster care were reunified with their birth families.
Our country's displaced children can go home.
Why? Lack of resources, fundamental misinformation, and wrong assumptions. Let’s stop “giving” kids to the state. Our aim is to bring this to the attention of both the public and policy makers so we can bring these children home. We have a realistic hope that the day will come when there will be no displaced children among us.
If only 1% of our families step forward, all our children will have homes. Many recent developments are making this more possible than ever.
