The foster care system and the Child protective services (CPS) main goal is to maintain and provide children with a safe environment/home, when they are at risk or in danger. The main reasons children enter the system are because they are being abused, neglected, parents have abandoned them, have an illness, have died, or are struggling with addiction. As of September of 2015, there was an estimate of 427,910 children in foster care, 45 percent were placed in the homes of non relatives. About two thirds of children in the system have siblings and most are separated, about 31 percent of former foster youth will spend time couch-surfing and homeless. Their are far more children entering the system than people opening up their doors and becoming foster parents. There are also more and more cases of child abuse within the foster homes being reported and discovered. While the intentions of the system is to better the lives of the children the system itself is against them, the separation of siblings, being sent to multiple homes, and aging out are a few problems that the foster care system have control over and can change. It’s clear that the they aren’t meeting their goals, but what happens in the lives of these children that are the victims in the situation is a social issue that society as a whole should be a part of.

As of 2016 there were nearly a half million children in the foster care system, with roughly 25,000 “aging-out” each year (Ahmann, 2017). Most adolescents “age out” of the system with no one to mentor or serve as a caring parent figure. Foster youth are in dire need of long-term adult role models to guide them to achieve success. According to Ahmann, 50% of foster youth left “the system” without a high-school degree, as well as with having higher rates of PTSD, and depression (p. 43). Ahmann presented that research has proven teenagers, in general, that have quality relationships from adults able to provide support, do better than those that do not. If research has shown efficacy in supportive adult figures in a teen’s life then one can conclude that foster youth would also benefit. Foster children are at a disadvantage a soon as they enter “the system” so giving them resources proven positive is vital to their future success.

Blog Post #5: Abuse Within the Foster Care System The Foster Care System was designed to create a safe place for children to escape abuse in their own homes, or for their parents to learn and apply better habits. Although this concept is accurate many times children leave a toxic home and enter a new one. Abuse is very prominent in foster care homes. Many parents try their best to care for the children under their care, but the abusive minority is large enough to raise serious concern. (Wexler, 2017). The homes where abusive is dominant which are designed to care for these children have become unsafe. A child should have the right to feel safe no matter the situation, sadly that is not the case. Statistics prove of the approximate 683,000
Imagine one day that all of a sudden when you and your siblings arrive home from school, and your parents are nowhere to be found. Your neighbor informs you that ICE officials raided your house and deported your parents. According to CNN News, that’s exactly what happened to the Soza siblings, Ronaldo, 14 and Cesia, 17. They are a prime example of what the effects of deportation can have on children. According to an ACR report there is an estimated 5,100 children who are currently in the foster care system. The foster care system would put the child in danger of never seeing their parents again. According to ICE there is an average, 17 children who are placed in the foster care system, due to the detainment and deportation of their parents

It consists of screening, assessing, planning, implementing, following up, and evaluating the situation of the foster child assigned.

Residence for children who have been a victim to abuse, neglect or other matters in their family that put them in harms way. This is what the foster care system was designed for.

Foster Children Foster care has a lot of problems. Some problems are, ”Critics of the foster care system believe that children's needs are not properly met through the current system and that reform is necessary” If critics think this then they should fix it. Also, foster parents should not be able to send foster children back into the system. Another reason is i'm thankful that i'm not a foster kid no more because i was adopted right out of the hospital, and I want other kids to be the same way if more people would adopt kids there would be less problems in foster care because there would be less children to make the problems. Also, there should be more help for the children in foster care like if they come from an Abusive family and Neglect
