We know that foster youth are disproportionately affected by academic failure, illicit substance abuse and homelessness. Yet, foster care and childhood trauma do not currently elicit the same sense of urgency or the same level of support as other societal ills. We are determined to change that.
While FTC strongly supports work done at a legislative level to protect children’s rights, the thrust of our organization’s advocacy is aimed at educating and inspiring individuals around the world to take action within their communities.
We have coined the term Relational Advocacy which is the core of our advocacy work. With 20,000 volunteers across the globe, it is through personal relationship that we are able to share the work of the organization and the needs of the children we serve.
If each of us were to answer this call to care for children in foster care, imagine how we could change their lives and our society as a whole. We sincerely hope that you join us in taking action for the children.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
— John 13:34-35
