Statistics

Over 1,200 San Francisco children are in foster care. Most children placed in foster care have suffered trauma as a result of parental neglect or abuse. The trauma, coupled with the need to adjust to new environments in a residential and educational setting, often places numerous stressors on the child. Studies of youth who have left foster care have shown they are more likely than those in the general population to not finish high school, be unemployed, and experience homelessness.
