"But you, O God, do see trouble and grief; you consider it to take it in hand. The victim commits himself to you; you are the helper of the fatherless." Psalm 10:14

About 250,000 children enter the US foster care system yearly.

As of September 30, 2014, there were 415,129 children in the foster care system.

More than a quarter were in the homes of relatives, while nearly half were in the homes of non-relatives.  The other 25% were in institutions, group homes, trial home visits, preadoptive homes, had run away, or in supervised independent living.

In 2014, 264,746 children entered care - that translates to a child entering care every two minutes in the United States.
