abused in foster care

Foster care abuse is far too common.

Sexual abuse of children in foster care is prevalent.  A study by John Hopkins University found that children who are in foster care are four times more likely to be sexually abused than other children not in this setting. Additionally, children who are in group homes are 28 times more likely to be abused than children not living in these homes (1).
