Elk Grove, CA. (PRWEB) February 28, 2008 - A California social worker is taking an innovative, high-
tech approach to solving a longstanding problem. Stewart Gordon has launched FosterCareCentral.org to bring information, resources and people together to improve the lives of foster-care children nationwide.
Foster Care Central is the first social network for people dedicated to enhancing the lives of foster youth, according to Gordon. The free Website capitalizes on the power of Web 2.0 technology and the popularity of social networking to offer a variety of interactive features, including discussion forums, resource listings, groups, videos, and education and training.
"Foster Care Central recognizes that the current foster-care system is broken and uses the knowledge from all those within the system to recognize the problems and create solutions for better outcomes for foster youth," Gordon said.
Gordon created Foster Care Central to bring attention and change to the nation's forgotten and most vulnerable population--the 500,000-plus children in the nation's foster care system. He launched the site out of frustration and a strong desire to make a difference. "I got fed up with the lack of the children's success in foster care and the tragedies that happen to youth when they 'age out' of the system at 18 and have no permanent connections," said Gordon, who works in one of the country's biggest problem areas.
