Share Teens in Foster Care: The Plight, The Pain, and The Possibility for a Better Future

Event Details

Inspired by her own experience parenting a teen from foster care, Cris Beam's To the End of June  explores in-depth the complexities of the child welfare system, and the challenges of providing some of the most vulnerable children with safe, stable, permanent homes. Beam goes beyond reporting the statistics to give a face to and share the stories of youth entangled in the system who face the likely consequences of aging out of foster care without a stable, committed family: increased chances of homelessness, incarceration, illness, and fewer opportunities for education.

Beam will read from her book and discuss the particular challenges faced by teens in foster care. She will be joined in a panel discussion by a teen from foster care, foster parents, and staff from Children's Aid Society's Teen Foster Care program. The panel will be moderated by Mary Keane from You Gotta Believe.

Children's Aid Society

The mission of The Children’s Aid Society is to help children in poverty to succeed and thrive. We do this by providing comprehensive supports to children and their families in targeted high-needs New York City neighborhoods.

Since our founding in 1853, Children’s Aid has been at the forefront of developing innovative and effective programs for New York City’s most vulnerable children. Our caring begins before birth and continues into adulthood, addressing all aspects of a child’s development. And because children are most likely to thrive when their families are stable, we provide a host of services to parents as well.
