Share Your Story With Members of Congress

The Foster Youth Caucus has sent us an invitation to share our stories about foster care. It would be helpful for Members of Congress  to hear about the successes and the challenges. Stories can be written or video format.

Share Your Story–Make Your Mark in American History
To honor May as National Foster Care Month, Members of Congress will share stories from foster youth on the floor of the House of Representatives. The stories will be heard by other Members of Congress and entered into the Congressional Record, forever archived as a piece of our nation’s history.

Tell us your story so that Members may bring awareness to the struggles and successes you experience with the foster care system.

National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity to shine a light on your experiences and raises awareness about the urgent needs and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved–as foster or adoptive parents, volunteers, mentors, employers or in other ways.

We hope you can join us in helping bring awareness to Congress and subsequently our nation as a whole. If we all work together we can improve the lives of youth in foster care.
Please share your story here.

Note: If you would like to keep your story anonymous, please just let us know and we’ll maintain your privacy.

Sincerely,
Caucus Co-Chairs
