Ne’a was 11 when she first entered foster care and claims she was forced to share a tiny bedroom with two other children and put to work on a large property. In her second placement, Ne’a claims her foster family pulled away from her after she went to college, leaving her feeling devastated and alone.

“I feel one of the greatest challenges of this whole thing is the instability that it brings and also the trauma,” says Ne’a, adding that she feels like foster care sets kids up for failure.

Later, Ne'a tells Dr. Phil what she is doing to make a better future for herself. Plus, hear from Charity Chandler-Cole, CEO of the foster children’s advocacy group CASA of Los Angeles, and Bishop Ed Smith, Founder and CEO of the Nehemiah Project LA, who discuss what they’re doing to fight for change in the foster care system.
