Youth Perspective: When Things Get Rough - Foster Club

Ever wonder why some foster youth are not particularly excited when the holidays come around?  Here is some insight and statistics from a blog post by Lupe, a FosterClub All-Star.

"Why do holidays seem to be so hard for kids in foster care? Here's what the members of FosterClub had to say:

82% Missing their family

8% Memories of the past

8% Everyone else has family around

0% Nowhere to go

2% All of the above"

Check on your foster youth over the holidays and give them some encouragement!
