Hispanic/Latino children are 25 percent of the child population and 21 percent of the children in foster care. The ever-increasing Hispanic/Latino population means that more families are available to foster children. Unfortunately, it also results in more Hispanic/Latino children entering the foster care system.
Some Hispanic/Latinos in care are non-native English speakers. When possible, Hispanic/Latino children are placed in Spanish-speaking homes to make the transition more smooth and strengthen their cultural ties. However, non-Spanish speakers are more than qualified to provide a loving home to Spanish-speaking children, and many support systems are available to families who foster children with cultural backgrounds different from their own.
