In St. Paul, Minnesota and other States throughout the nation, there is a need for foster parents for children who have been put into the state system due to child neglect, child abuse, child abandonment, and other poor to non-existent parenting from a child’s biological parents. In St. Paul, Minnesota, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) Minnesota, a non-profit organization for abused and neglected children, placed 185 cardboard cut outs of children on the lawn of the State of Minnesota capital. The organization put out 185 cutouts to represent the same number of children that are placed in the Minnesota foster care system every day. Foster children rely on the State of Minnesota government for their health, safety, and welfare. Funding is always an important issue. In addition, there is always a need for volunteers and foster care parents to help with these most deserving children.
