At any given moment, hundreds of youth are homeless in Minnesota.
The State of Minnesota and the County foster care systems are responsible for hundreds of the state's youth. These kids, lost in the chaos of the foster care system, are wards of the state, meaning they are without parents. No one to love and nurture them. No one to help them through difficult times. No one to cheer them on, or at the very least lighten their load.
- There are currently over 800 children under state guardianship
- 489 of these kids are in need of adoptive families immediately
- 42 percent are 12-18 years old
- 33 percent are 6-11 years old
