Why choose Ampersand Families?

I volunteer at Ampersand Families because the brevity of youth demands that we take action on behalf of children in our foster care system.  It’s a tragedy every time we remove a child from their family.  The responsibility of society is to find a new family for that child.

Al, former board chair
