Over 400,000 children each year are not able to live with their families as the result of the trauma of abuse, neglect and abandonment. The needs of these children are greater than public funding are able to provide. The Children's Foundation of America identifies and accesses resources to support foster care, adoption, residential treatment, mental health and community-based programs of the highest quality, so that children in need or who have been the victims of trauma, abuse, neglect or abandonment may lead healthy, productive lives.
The Children’s Foundation of America provides an opportunity for every person to help children heal, learn and thrive. The Foundation has given bicycles to foster children, backpacks full of school supplies to disadvantaged students, scholarships to college-bound at-risk youth, and provided supplies for foster and adoptive children to create “life books” to document their happiest experiences as they create a better future.
