Various organizations, from large corporations and businesses to churches and civic groups, play a critical role in Holt's efforts to unite children with the safe, nurturing families they need. Tonight, children will sleep in a social worker's office, or in a hotel room, or they might board a flight to a residential facility on the other side of the country, all because we don't have enough families willing and prepared to welcome them home. And we know that we can't stop this foster care crisis without the help of organizations like yours. As we redouble our efforts to ensure that children in foster care can join a loving and secure home, we once again need your partnership. Will you come alongside us to help advocate for kids in foster care?
Here are a few ways that your organization can get involved!

What happens to these children (and teenagers) when they leave foster care?Download Your Free E-book
