Kids At Risk Action tracks monthly news about at risk children.

KARA’s reporting is a small part of the abuse suffered by children each month –  the great majority of child trauma & abuse is never known.

American states are struggling to find answers for better foster care, trauma informed services, child protection and ending adverse childhood experiences and saving at risk children by reversing the explosive growth of child abuse and neglect.

Today, state ward children are the 4th and 5th generation of abused children raising their own families without parenting skills and with serious drug, alcohol and mental health issues.

37% of children overall and 57% of Black children are reported to child protection services in America by the time they turn 18.

(American Journal of Public Health 1.17)

6 – 12 million children a year are reported to child protection services each year and in many states, 1/3 of foster children are required to take psychotropic medicines
