A Project of the O.L. Pathy Family Foundation shows the link between the foster care system and human trafficking and how states are failing to care for children in foster care. The report was written by Firas Nasr, Nora Coyne, Joanna DiBiase, and Winnie Chu, designed by Anne Paglia, and the photo credits belong to Myles Tan, Unsplash. A state-by-state evaluation of foster care and human trafficking can be found at https://humantraffickingsearch.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Foster-Care-Report.pdf.
Minding Hearts is building advocacy and peer support groups in each state. The groups are created to raise awareness, educate, and advocate for those that might not otherwise be heard. We are here for encouragement, education, and support. We cannot give legal advice, but we can try and direct you in the right direction with your case. Links to legal services are listed with their states. Please share and let’s grow our groups. We are here to support families and develop resources that maintain family integrity. We look forward to your support. If you would rather become active by donating, then visit the donation page.
