We are working to bring reforms to our foster care system so every Kansas kid can have a safe and permanent home.
In response to a record number of children in foster care -- 7,670 youth as of May 2018 -- and troubling reports of inadequate protections for children in the state’s custody, we are conducting surveys and interviews of families and experts and will be publishing our findings soon.
Kansas Appleseed coordinates Strengthen Families Rebuild Hope, an independent coalition advocating for a better foster care system for Kansas kids. For more information about the coalition, upcoming events, and our research, visit www.RebuildHopeKansas.org.
Upcoming event: Wichita Foster Care Forum
When: Tuesday, August 21; 6 - 7:30 p.m.
Where: Advance Learning Library (711 West 2nd St., Wichita, KS)
