Foster Care System

Why the president should pay attention to the foster care system

Dear Future President,

I strongly believe that the foster care system needs to be changed. Children are being sent to abusive homes with people who only care about the check coming in. Then, the children get ripped out of their homes out of nowhere, left with nothing. There needs to be better home investigators and a  better system overall. Furthermore, all of these group homes are really dangerous. No one focuses on helping these kids do something with their lives. They're susceptible to identity theft because of the easy access to their information. They are also very susceptible poverty because they're kicked out of the system at just 18 years old. There needs to be change to help these children be loved and become something. STOP THE CORRUPTION!
