Allies was honored to present yesterday at the National Adoption Association Conference on the critical need for LGBTQ resource parents and LGBTQ-affirming homes. Nationally, more than 30% of youth in foster care identify as LGBTQ+, which is a rate 3x higher than their peers who are not in the system. It is essential that these youth are placed in homes that affirm their identity and celebrate them for who they are. We are proud to be a partner in this work with UCLA TIES for Families and @Raiseachild.
