May is National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let’s start with some facts and figures:
• More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care, with 75 to 80 percent of those in foster care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse.
• The average age of a child in care: 10.7 years.
• More than 73 percent of the children/youth in care are white; 19.3 percent are black and 4.3 percent are Hispanic.
