May News/Events New Toll-Free Number in Time for Foster Care Awareness Month According to Kansas Department for Children and Aging, there are 5,600 youth in the state's foster care system. AYS has been a leader in serving Kansas foster youth for close to 40 years and is continually seeking loving foster parents throughout the state of Kansas to meet this need. To make it easier for people interested in learning more about fostering, AYS has built a simple online form, and has now added a toll-free number: 1-855-539-2799. If you have ever thought about fostering, National Foster Care Awareness Month is a great time to call or email to learn more. Call us today! Posted at: 14:04; May 13, 2013
