In addition to the maltreatment of children in foster care, another issue that arises is that children are moved from one foster care home to another on an average of every six weeks (NCANDS, 2012). With the changes in the caregivers of children in foster care experience, the more likely they are to exhibit oppositional behavior, crying, and clinging. With that being said, in 2012, 23,396 youth aged out of the U.S. foster care system without the emotional and financial support necessary to succeed. Nearly 40% had been homeless or couch surfed, nearly 60% of young men had been convicted of a crime, and only 48% were employed. Seventy-five percent of women and 33% of men receive government benefits to meet basic needs.
But sometimes, due to certain unfortunate circumstances, children have to suffer separation from their family of origin for their own betterment. They need to be placed under state care, in some other family, so that their future is secured. Foster care is intended to be a short term solution until a permanent placement can be made. The work of healing children and families in foster care starts with the child welfare system, but it does not end there.
After learning the summary of every child’s rights under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, I am more concerned about mental health resources for children, especially for children who experience traumas. According to United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (Unicef, 1989), “Children who have been neglected, abused or exploited should receive special help to physically and psychologically recover and reintegrate into society”. Children who experience traumatic events have right to receive rehabilitation services from communities, school, health care facilities. I believe rehabilitations are same as important as preventions in child welfare programs. However, child welfare in the United States still is under consideration
Again, supporting the butterfly effect the children are not showing responsibility or a good work ethic. Nearly one half children in foster care in U.S. become homeless when they turn eighteen. One if every ten foster child stays in foster care longer than seven years. Each year about 15,000 reach the adult age and leave the system without a permanent family—many join the ranks of the homeless or to commit crimes and be imprisoned

According to a Child Protective Investigation, there are approximately half a million children in the U.S. foster care system, otherwise known as congregate care (group homes and institutions). Children are placed in congregate care when they are found to be in an unsafe environment. Usually children of abuse or maltreatment are placed first (Font, 2015). Out-of-home-care causes increased problems of attachment, behavioral, and psychological disorders in the developing child. Child safety is the primary goal of out-of-home-care; however, maltreatment investigations are still reported in those institutions.
Such attachment theories have moulded practise within daily childcare and school settings, also within social care
I. Introduction According to the Administration for Children and Families, there are currently more than 400,000 children in foster care in the United States (2015).

Foster families provide parental care and supervision while agency staff, Child Protection Services (CPS) try to achieve reunification with the biological family, kin care or adoption.
