Our mission is to give hope, help and healing to children, adults and those who love them.

 

In 2016, KidsPeace provided treatment and help to 12,228 clients across its hospital and residential treatment services, outpatient and community programs, and foster care operations – including 9,583 new admissions.

 

Everyday throughout the country, foster children are faced with the grim realities after they “age out” of the system;

 

·        54% will not complete high school

·        40 – 50% are homeless within 18 months of emancipation

·        42% become parents within 30 months of leaving foster care

·        25% are incarcerated within 24 months

 

Since 1882, KidsPeace, a private national charity, has changed lives by providing hope, help and healing to children, families and communities. KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Program of Maryland serves as a critical link for our families, providing intensive education and support services and placing children in safe and nurturing homes.
