60% of children in foster care are there because of issues related to neglect. They are there because they have good parents who cannot navigate their current crisis and take care of their children at the same time. Foster care separates at-risk families without a clear path or track record of restoration or healing of the family.
We believe there is a way to fix this.
Better Together is an organization that helps parents going through a hard time keep their kids out of foster care, find work, and address the root causes of their struggle so that they can reunite as a family with the tools and support system to thrive. We are a privately funded and professionally supported organization, made up of volunteers who believe helping people help themselves is the best way to restore dignity and bring families together.
