In 1988, under the administration of President Ronald Reagan, Foster Care Awareness Month was celebrated for the first time by a presidential proclamation. The original focus was to honor foster parents for opening their homes and caring for children in foster care. Since, Foster Care Awareness Month is celebrated in the U.S. during the month of May and takes on a new theme each year. This year, the national theme is "Foster Care as a Support to Families, Not a Substitute for Parents"!
Foster Can, Inc. is publicly launching by participating in National Foster Care Awareness Month with an all month, social media celebration, "31 Days of Fostering Care"! We will highlight foster care success stories, raise awareness on foster care issues, educate the community on opportunities for engagement, drop merch, and so much more! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @fostercaninc to be a part of the celebration.
