Children come into foster care due to abuse, neglect, and abandonment, through no fault of their own. AASK connects children with foster families, adoptive families, siblings, kin, and adult mentors.
Walk funds specifically help to provide mentors for children placed in group homes and shelters. They help reunite siblings separated by foster care. And they help support Kinship families (often grandparents, aunts and uncles) who take emergency placement of the children of relatives.
