An invisible epidemic has taken over the United States. Children are removed from American family members at the alarming rate of about 900 children per day. Family separations at the border have raised public awareness to the fear and pain that stems from children being forcibly seized by state and federal agencies. The crisis at the border as also raised the number of children that are taken into state custody, and unfortunately, the Department of Children and Families cannot even keep up with the children coming into the United States and also has a habit of losing track of what happens to them. Lawmakers travel back and forth to the border to see for themselves how the U.S. government is caring for children that are taken into custody at the border. But who is looking after the children that are taken from American families? American families also know the fear and feelings of helplessness as they see their little ones and the little ones of their family members being taken into state custody.
Minding Hearts wants to make child safety work for every child. We are advocating for children, parents, caregivers, communities, and child protection workers. We build peer support groups where parents, children, and extended family members as well as foster and adoptive families learn to support each other. We believe that by making family units stronger we are also strengthening communities. We identify the needs of families and organize resources to fill those needs.

One thought on “About”
The new, reports and articles I find on Minding Hearts are amazing.
Its surprising you are not targeted and taken down. Openly criticizing and exposing the child welfare system is a dangerous undertaking, I commend you for doing it.
I’m in Colorado.
