foster care workers

Every child in Virginia should be in a loving home. The social workers responsible for each child in foster care are crucial to this being possible. 

A child who stays with one caseworker has a 74% chance to achieve a permanent and stable living situation.

 

But, if the child has two caseworkers in one year, their chances at a stable, loving home plummet to 17%

 

1 out of 4  social workers leave the foster care system due to burnout.

An alarming amount of social workers stop working in foster care after just 18 months.
