Can you imagine an America without foster care? Most experts agree that the best possible solution for children is to stay with or be reunited with family once placed in care. Many child neglect and endangerment situations can be averted if parents can avoid despair. Society, communities, and organizations can play a meaningful role to ensure parents get the support they need to provide for themselves and their families.
