At this moment, there are about 443,000 children in foster care in the United States, and most of them remain in the foster care for about two years.
Also, the kids that are in foster care are very young, and the average age of the children entering the foster care is eight.
‘Together We Rise’ reported that 1,200 children entered foster care in the United states every day. To address this problem, TWR is bringing volunteers to help children in foster care, and also encourage more families to adopt these children.
This non-profit organization is dedicated to transform the way how young children navigate through the foster care system in the United States. It was discovered in 2008, by Danny Mendoza after he found out that his 9 year old cousin was living in a car. Even though he was trying to help, he was younger than 21, and he ran into obstacles.
After he was denied the capacity to support his cousin, he chose to figure out how to help kids in comparative circumstances. In the wake of advising his vision to his companions and associates, he was urged to begin another association. His vision turned into a reality with Together We Rise developed, presently an across the nation association changing the manner in which youth experience child care.
A couple of years back, the association began posting pictures of recently adopted children to Facebook and Instagram, and the reaction was stunning!
They clarified that a large number of individuals connected with them, ready to get familiar with the way toward turning into a temporary parent or adopt kids.
