On any giv­en night, about 57,000 chil­dren under the care of our nation’s child wel­fare sys­tems are going to bed with­out the care and com­fort of a fam­i­ly. In its lat­est KIDS COUNT pol­i­cy report, the Casey Foun­da­tion high­lights this and oth­er sober­ing sta­tis­tics that point to the urgent need to ensure that every­thing pos­si­ble is being done to find lov­ing, nur­tur­ing and sup­port­ed fam­i­lies to help raise more of these children.

Specif­i­cal­ly, Every Kid Needs a Fam­i­ly empha­sizes mak­ing and keep­ing a life­long con­nec­tion to a fam­i­ly. The report also high­lights the promis­ing ways that state and local gov­ern­ment lead­ers, as well as pol­i­cy­mak­ers, judges and pri­vate providers, can work togeth­er as they strive to help these 57,000 chil­dren who are liv­ing in group place­ments — and over­all, the more than 400,000 chil­dren in the care of child wel­fare systems.
