“A little over a year ago I was listening to a podcast about children in foster care. The statistics being quoted were staggering. Here’s one that is hard to fathom – a shocking 66% of children in foster care will be homeless, go to jail, be sex trafficked or die within ONE YEAR of leaving the system. Only 50% will graduate high school and 97% will NOT graduate college. How are those for odds stacked against you? I immediately started dreaming of the launch of Bakersfield Angels.
There are over 2,000 children in foster care in Kern County. Neglect is the number one reason children are removed from their homes. We know that not everyone is called to foster and not everyone is called to adopt, but EVERYONE can make a difference in a child’s life.
Through partnering with Bakersfield Angels, you can help us begin to change these statistics. Together we can love on each child experiencing foster care in Bakersfield and point them to their God-given potential.”
