Abused and neglected children often end up in foster homes. Confused and alone, they have no one to help them navigate this new world. Our kids need your help, and we're asking you to lead the charge toward a brighter future for our youth by helping to produce a book and DVD that will help them successfully advocate for themselves.

Thousands of children are placed in foster care every year. CCA’s legal rights video and book is a survival kit that teach foster children self advocacy skills so they can get the help they need and look forward to healthy, productive lives.

The book and video we want to produce are packed with important information for foster youth. This resource is the survival kit that so many have come to depend on, but our inventory has run out and we have not been able to secure the funding to produce them again.

With information about how to contact their attorneys or social workers, how to ensure the continuation of their education, their rights to health care and mental health care, this material is critical for children who truly need our help. Unfortunately, when times get tough, resources that cater to our most at risk population are often the first to go.

Foster children need these resources and we need you to help us to make that happen. Let’s work together to ensure that all kids have the chance to look forward to a secure future and to be a part of our future. Your support is needed by countless children.

Children in foster care belong to all of us. Now is the time to show we care.
