Our care system is failing as funding and support dries up

When I unexpectedly had the opportunity to become a temporary foster parent, I was shocked to see the inner workings of a system in real trouble. While the number of foster families is declining, the number of children requiring alternative care has increased. Social workers are overwhelmed and underpaid. Just like foster parents.

The most recently released figures from Tusla showed that in 2020 there were almost 6,000 children in care; 5,445 of them are in foster families and 525 in homes. Each of these children deserves a loving home with people who care and care for them.
