Episode Summary

Raymond Torres and Shirley Diaz
On an average day in the United States, 1,425 children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care - more than 500,000 kids a year. Almost 20% of these children are Latino. Raymond Torres, the executive director of Casey Family Services, discusses the causes of this over-representation, the need to enlist more Latino families to participate as foster families, and ways to reduce the number of Latino children who experience foster care in America. Shirley Díaz, a product of six different foster homes, has produced a public radio documentary about the foster care system. She brings a personal and poignant perspective to this discussion.moreless
