Today, more than a dozen children will come into foster care in Arkansas because of abuse or neglect. They will join nearly 4,500 other children in state custody. This year, more than 7,000 children will spend time in foster care. Children are placed in emergency shelters, group homes or residential facilities. Siblings are often separated because there is not a home available to take them as a group. Having a pool of available foster and adoptive families in every county in Arkansas would go a long way toward solving the problem.
