Foster Care: Road to Homelessness
As we all know and must worry about, the number of kids being dumped into foster care is rising immensely. Even though foster care is provided with the main reason for the protection and welfare of the children, some, if not most of the children sent to foster care later become homeless. Foster care is itself a huge problem amongst families and it is also becoming a leading cause to homelessness.
People tend to undermine this fact which only results it to grow. “More than 23,000 children will age out of the US foster care system every year” (NFYIADMIN). Which means that amongst

According to abcnews.go.com, “Thirty percent of the homeless in America and some 25
percent of those in prison were once in foster care.” This statement means a little more than 50
percent of the children going into foster care are likely to either go to prison at one point in their
life or be homeless. A small child’s life was taken by a foster care parent with cruel and unusual
ways of punishment, the child complained to many people, such as her birth mother, her social
worker, etc. Even after many complaints, the child remained in the home, child received a
punishment that ended her life. People’s general lack of knowledge or unwillingness to pay
attention are the main reasons why

Beneficial Resources and Interventions for Short Term Foster Parents

This study focuses on the overnight program at a foster care agency and what information the
foster parents find important to know about the child and what resources might be beneficial to
be included in the program that could be available for the foster parents and the children. Data
from the five foster parents interviewed showed that trainings and support were important for the
foster parent to fully support and care for the child. The foster parents filed out a table expressing

The Need for Trauma-Informed Care within the Foster System
Child Welfare (CW) agencies are tasked with the mission and purpose to help, protect,
and rehabilitate children who have suffered from maltreatment, and with hundreds of thousands
of children coming into the system experiencing some of the most heinous acts of abuse, they
deserve recognition and attention. The CW agencies being an integral part to the fabric of our
society, and an essential piece of many children's lives, it seems otherworldly to believe that they
do not have adequate trauma-informed care or practices. This raises the question: How can we

I believe that gay couples should be allowed to adopt children. Sexual preference has nothing to do with how well a person or a couple can raise a child. The foster care and adoption systems of today are overloaded with children in need of a home. Adoption is a gift to couples that cannot have children of their own, or for couples that choose to take in children who need homes. Thus Gay couples should be allowed to adopt children and provide them in a loving home if that is what the couple wishes to do. Gay couples are as capable if not more, to raise children in a loving caring house hold. It is extremely important for children to grow up in stable and loving environments. In a

head-on. America is presently facing a crisis in the adoption and the foster care system. Currently, there are more than 400, 000 children are in foster care, in which 114, 556 are unable to be given back to their families (Adoption Network, 2017). While in the foster care system, these children face severe damages in their sub-standard foster homes and usually become victims of the “foster care shuffle” (ACLU, 2018). Furthermore, both the state and the nation incur the foster care administrative cost, which is averagely $6, 675 annually per child.

experiences when separating from their biological family is extremely traumatic. Any consistency that can be maintained in their lives should be the priority of the Child Welfare when choosing a placement option.
Kinship guardianship is often not managed by child welfare in the same manner as traditional foster care. Many times, a child who is placed in a home with relatives is not afforded the same resources and services as one placed in a non-relative home. Additionally, the private versus public systems that oversee kinship guardians have historically had strained partnerships due to different practice philosophies.
Appreciating the concerns that kinship often face, it is clear that

The study also showed that there was evidence of love, respect, and a constructive relationship between father and son; yet, the case to approve Oscar's adoption was dismissed because of the Florida policy (Ferrero, Frecker, Foster 2). As a result, many innocent children, like Oscar, are being separated from foster parents they have learned to love. Many of these children will grow up to be a burden on society. Because of the lack of attention they receive, foster children grow up rebellious and often join neighborhood gangs. With many parents ready and able to adopt many of these children, Florida still denies adoption rights to homosexuals because

Q: If there is one thing you can change about the Human Services system, what would it be?
I. A: If I had the resources, I would provide more funding for programs. I, also, would be interested in setting up Foster Care Programs to assist the youth. I would like for there to be a program, where kids who don’t have parents or are neglected can be put into a well-funded foster care program. I, also, would recommend that the “new” foster care parents should receive training on how to parent a child. This is so that our kids can get a fresh start. This would help our system because everything revolves in a cycle and our youth are the beginning of that cycle.

It starts off with his death and his dying word being rosebud. This was a sleigh he played with as a child. We only see his life through the eyes of his friends and enemies. It's impossible to totally see what this movie is all about, but it is basically just about one man's emptiness and loneliness of which he tried to fill with when he inherits a small newspaper company and turns it into one of the most successful periodical companies in the country.the film deals with the Charles Kane not being able to love anyone or anything with

child. Moreover, deaths and parents leaving their children behind are incidents in people's life that can lead to unexpected parenting. These two factors contribute to an unlimited age in parenting because people at any age can take place as a parent for their lost ones and they can take place as a foster parent. Any age doesn't literally mean any age; it means that you must be able to take care of yourself. Parenting doesn't depend on the age; it depends on the willingness to accept the responsibilities to raise a child into a grown adult. People can be parents starting from early ages when they have responsibilities and commitments to become role models. Parenting lastsfor a lifetime, and it

Her parent’s noncompliance would eventually have devastating effects. Lia suffered more and more severe seizures and began to show signs of mental retardation. Concerned for Lia's safety, Neil Ernst, one of her physicians, notified Child Protective Services (CPS) and had Lia placed into foster care. While her foster parents were kind, the separation was traumatic for both Lia and her parents.

and then challenged" (Bressler, 183). In a general look at Trifles, a reader can figure right away the roles given to women in that era. Women's roles were mainly reproductive and briefly social. These roles place a woman in the kitchen; expecting her to cook, bake, do housework and take good care of her husband. Moreover, women's roles are determined by their husbands. That is why women –except for Minnie Foster- don't get first names throughout the play. Mrs. Peters, who is married to the sheriff, is viewed in this term, not as an independent woman.

Ask the average Australian who their favourite Prime Minister or local member of Parliament is, and you’ll more than likely get a variation of two replies – “dunno” or “don’t care, mate.” Seemingly rooted in the Australian identity and way of life is this casual disaffection for politics, and youth in particular have long been associated with an ingrained detachment from the political process.
