That's how many children within 20 miles of your front door will fall asleep tonight separated from their parents.
Each of them helpless to their situation. Each processing the trauma of their separation in different ways. Many not knowing where their siblings are. All of them waiting for this to all be over.
The process of either returning home or finding a stable home can take years, often because there aren't enough homes able to care for the needs of a child who's experiencing so much turmoil.
We aim to reverse this. To find more homes, to equip more families, to move more children out of care each year than enter.
With each year, each service provided, each family served, and each partner engaged, we move closer and closer to this goal.
It's the reason we're launching the One Step Closer Movement. It's a fun run, sort of. But it's so much more than that. At its core it's an invitation to you and your circle to close the gap for these children; to move them one step closer to family with each step you take.
Here's how you get involved:
Register yourself or your group on our website
Invite friends to join your team
