FosterMore is a public education campaign which was made possible
by a grant from the Stuart Foundation to i.e. communications,
LLC. The campaign centers on a public service announcement (PSA)
aired during May 2013 – National Foster Care Month. The objective
of the PSA is to raise awareness and bring a more positive tone
to the dialogue around children and youth in foster care. Learn
