The Truth About Foster Care, Amber Singleton Riviere, 12/12/11

Amber Singleton RivierreAs the founder of Fund the Farm, Amber Singleton Riviere wanted to find a way to have a greater impact on foster care within the U.S. After deciding to adopt a child of her own, it didn't take long for her to decide it would be from foster care. When she saw the sheer number of kids who had been abused, abandoned, neglected, or for whatever reason ended up in foster care, she was at first overwhelmed and heartbroken. Over time, though, she started to see that she had room for these kids or, rather, could make room, and so began the idea of Fund the Farm.

  • Nearly 500,000 children are in US foster care.
  • More than 100,000 are waiting for adoptive families.
  • Over 20,000 "age out" of foster care each year.

Hear Amber’s story and about her ambitious goal with Fund the Farm. The mission began with hopes of creating a self-sustaining farm to build better lives for more kids in foster care. With nearly 500,000 kids in foster care in the U.S. and 100,000 of them needing permanent homes, it's important to make lasting change.  A farm would provide a place for more kids in foster care to live and thrive and for older kids and those who have aged out of the system to come home to and learn essential life skills they'll need as adults, and with so many opportunities for growth and expansion, a farm would quickly become a self-sustaining operation that could make an even bigger impact on foster care in the U.S.
