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. WE SEEK TO FIND INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM.
Project Blue was created in 2015 by current and former foster youth and alumni from across the United States to highlight and end the problems around the foster care system, including negative stigmas, and to inspire courage in those who've experienced foster care. We also seek to educate the general public about these issues and empower them to create change within their local 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 foster youth and alumni. We have hosted our first Go Blue Foster Care Awareness Day Campaign, 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 is currently in foster care, inter grading technology into the foster care system, and solutions to address foster youth who age out of the foster care system. 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.
