Casey Family Programs is the nation's largest operating foundation focused entirely on foster care and improving the child welfare system.
The Foundation was founded in 1966 and works to provide and improve the quality of foster care. The ultimately goal of the Foundation is to prevent the need for foster care in the United States.
As champions for change, Casey Family Programs is committed to its 2020 Strategy for America's Children with the goal of safely reducing the number of children in foster care and improve the lives of those who remain in care.
Pedagogy of the Oppressed, a 1970s book by author Paulo Freire, envisions a world not as a given reality, but as “a problem to be worked on and solved.” That mentality is often applied to the greatest social entrepreneurs.
