Child Welfare

November 3, 2008, 12:05pm

If one looks at various parts of world where abandoned and orphaned children are left to fend for themselves, we see images of children sorting through garbage, caught up in exploitative situations, and living in the streets. As imperfect as the State systems are there are people committed to the reunification, preservation, and maintaining safe and stable care for children whose parents cannot or will not provide these things for their children. It is an infinite challenge and any funding that becomes available goes toward helping these children so they don't wind up in harm's way.
