Bronx foster parents, advocates rally against ACS

THE BRONX - Foster parents and advocates protested against the city's Administration for Children's Services throughout The Bronx on Thursday.

About 50 people marched with signs and chants, claiming that foster care agencies don't provide enough support to parents and children, especially once kids age out of the system.

An ACS spokesperson said the agency is, "Targeting recruitment efforts for foster and adoptive families to older teens, while trying to connect teens to mentors and other adult resources who will give them ongoing love and support."
