Why We Care
There are over 500,000 children in foster care. Most face unimaginable rejection, neglect, abuse and abandonment. Children in the foster care system are more susceptible to a variety of challenges such as homelessness, incarceration, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and limited education. Annually, over 20,000 age out of the system, many without the ability or support to transition effectively into independent living. James Storehouse is committed to providing a helping hand to children and youth facing such daunting challenges.
