“It is vital that we ensure that all qualified individuals have the support, resources, education and opportunity to serve this City’s most vulnerable population as foster, adoptive or kinship parents,” says the proclamation.

A statement from the White House says, “Every May, we renew our commitment to ensuring that all youth in foster care have the love, support, and resources they need to thrive. We also celebrate the families who provide safe and loving homes for our Nation’s foster children.
