May is National Foster Care Month

MAY is National Foster Care Month!
Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity to shine a light on the experiences of the more than 400,000 children and youth in the foster care system. The campaign raises awareness about the urgent needs of these young people and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved – as foster or adoptive parents, volunteers, mentors, employers or in other ways.

Show your support.
Calling all NYAP Foster Parents.  Make sure you wear your NYAP Blue Ribbons to show your support for the month of May.  Of course, non Foster Parents can help show your support as well.  We invite everyone from all around the Nation.

The choice to foster a child, youth or sibling group is an important decision in the life of the foster parent and of the youth they foster.  At NYAP, we take extra care to place the right kids into the right homes and for the right reasons. We believe that all kids are most successful when they live in a family setting and in the communities they call home until they can be reunited with their own family or with a relative.  We work hard to provide you with the special training, resources and support necessary to meet the individual needs of the youth.
