Child abuse and neglect are pervasive in the United States - an urgent crisis hidden in plain sight that contributes to society’s most intractable problems: poverty, school failure, homelessness, and crime. Foster America is a new movement with a strategy for change.
At the heart of Foster America is a fellowship program that attracts talented professionals from a variety of sectors - business, tech, health, and education - and leverages their diverse skills to tackle the child welfare system's most pressing challenges.
Foster America fellows take on full-time leadership roles at government and nonprofit child welfare agencies across the country that share our commitment to systemic change. With our support, fellows lead and innovate on major reform projects that improve the lives of our nation's most vulnerable children.
