PROJECT BLUE IS DEDICATED TO YEAR-ROUND ADVOCACY ON FOSTER CARE RELATED ISSUES AND IMPROVING OUR NATIONS UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROBLEMS WITHIN THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM, WHILE SEEKING TO FIND INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS ON IMPROVING THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM.
Project Blue was created in 2015 by current and former foster youth across the United States to highlight, resolve, and eliminate issues around the foster care system, including negative stigmas. Furthermore, Project Blue aims to inspire, encourage and uplift those who've experienced foster care. Additionally, we are seeking to educate the general public about these issues and empower them to create change within their own communities.
Project Blue hosts many large-scale events year round throughout the United States to raise awareness about the foster care system and the issues affecting many youth in care as well as those who have emancipated out. We head and host The National Foster Care Awareness Day (Go Blue Day), the National Foster Care Day of Silence, and Thanksgiving with the Fosters. We also host smaller events in local communities across the United States.
What we do
Project Blue is working to identify solutions to address foster care's most pressing issues. Solutions on how to improve the quality of care for those currently in foster care; integrating technology into the foster care system, and solutions to address foster youth who age out. We understand how important the legislative process is but we also understand that there are solutions that we can use now to improve foster care.
