Additionally, these feelings of depression and hopelessness may not end when a child is out of the foster care program but can have the potential to influence adulthood. Studies have found that, "there are sizably greater risks among adult [foster care] alumni for PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, and drug dependence." These setbacks also have the power to escalate into more severe issues and statistics like, "80 percent of the US prison population [being] made of children who were in substitute care." With studies and statistics like these, it is not hard to imagine how important it is to keep children within the bounds of safe and loving family environments.
Since 2003, the Center for Law and Social Work has been using their resources to legally bind families together and help children avoid the emotional pitfalls of living in foster care. In order to accomplish this, they offer various services that cater to the best interests of children and families. These services include adoption, adult guardianship, minor guardianship, backup planning, and clinical services.
The proceeds of doTERRA's donation, along with the donations of other donors, will help the Center for Law and Social Work continue their services and reduce feelings of depression and hopelessness among children by keeping them in positive family environments.
