What Are The Reform Efforts and Groups

Foster care reform efforts and groups have
been active in the United States for many years. Foster reform groups became
most active in the 1970s, which lead to an on-going series of reforms in the foster
care
. National Coalition for Child Protection Reform addresses abandonmentneglect, or abuse by individuals who victimize children in foster
care. Their efforts were instrumental in reforming foster care in Texas and
Maine. Coalition members have more than one thousand years of collective
experience dealing with family courts in resolving issues related to the foster
care or adoption.


An organization that focuses on the parents is the National Voice for Foster
Parents. This non-profit seeks to inform foster parents about the resources,
knowledge, and resources that are available to them when providing care to the
children for whom they have assumed at least temporary responsibility of
providing care. Many of the members of the organization are themselves foster
parents, and as such
, are able to provide information that is grounded
in their own experience.
