iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — May is Foster Care Awareness Month and the Disney-ABC Television Group is partnering with a coalition of nonprofit organizations and foundations to raise awareness of the nearly 400,000 youth in foster care today.
Public service announcements to promote FosterMore, a campaign to change the perception of young people in foster care and provide resources for individuals interested in making a difference, will air across Disney-ABC Television group platforms throughout the month.
“Each of the 400,000 youth in foster care today represents potential and a future yet to be realized,” David Ambroz of the Disney-ABC Television Group said. “We are proud to support this effort to encourage opportunities to help these young people succeed.”
The campaign will also include social media, allowing the word on foster care to be spread through FosterMore’s Facebook page and on Twitter @FosterMore.
