05/09/2023 Panel Discussion: Foster Care in America

There are more than 400,000 children in foster care in America. What does the current state of foster care in America look like? What’s working in the system, what’s not working, and what can be improved?

HopeWell’s President & CEO Shaheer Mustafa joined other nonprofit foster care providers from around the country in a conversation with m/Oppenheim’s Nonprofit Report. Together, the panel shared key insights about our nation’s foster care system(s), including:

  • Recruiting, training, and retaining foster families
  • Providing and scaling services for kids
  • Clarifying misconceptions about foster care
