Every year, over a quarter of a million children are placed in foster care because of abuse or neglect. Many end up on the street when they turn 18, and thousands become pregnant, incarcerated or chronically homeless.

In honor of National Foster Care month, Dr. Phil and Robin have joined forces with the National Foster Youth Institute to help build a movement across the country to transform the current system into a foundation of hope for families in crisis.

“You can donate to build and sustain a network of advocates in all 435 congressional districts,” Robin says.

Dr. Phil adds, “Your gift will help secure a brighter future for our nation’s foster children.”
