Helping Our Most Helpless Children

We have all read stories of how children are 'lost' in the Foster Care system. By 'lost' we mean the System simply cannot find them, and has no idea of where they went or what happened to them. Of course, since they are poor, they do not get the attention of JonBenet Ramsey. Whether they have run away, or abused and murdered, or sold as slaves into the child sex trade, no one knows. And the system does not seem to care, because it keeps on happening. No one can reach any conclusion other than the System is broken.

Franks Kids has a broader meaning. We believe that more than half of all children in the foster care system should be considered "lost" because more than half of children in foster care will be in jail by the time they are 21 years old.

We consider these children to be "most helpless" because their parents are not providing care, and the care provided by our government condemns these children to unacceptable futures. The only hope for these children is if you and I help them.

Please help these lost children have the chance at the same dreams we say every American should have!

Frank Lynch proposes to construct a nationwide system of Frank's Children's Villages consisting of small clusters of residential homes adjacent to neighborhood schools. Children would be saved from the foster care system and placed in these residences staff by full-time, live-in trained specialists to guide the children.

Each home would specialize in children having similar needs. Children would be categorized by age, sex, and development similarities, so that each home could be staff by s specialist targeting these children.

They would generally attend the adjacent neighborhood schools, but children with exceptional needs or emotional problems would live in homes adjacent to specialized schools.

Sound expensive? Only in the short term. So many decades ago that I cannot remember when, I heard it said that you could spend $50,000 today on a child and create a constructive and healthy citizen/taxpayer, or you could spend $500,000 or more over a lifetime on criminal prosecution, jails, police and welfare, not to mention the price paid by the crime victims of the maladjusted kids. And of course those people never pay taxes, they just drain our money out.

By the time they reach age 21, fully half of all the "graduates" of our national system of Foster Care are sentenced to jail, where you and I continue to pay for them, except that now we pay for them to get a graduate degree in how to live as criminals. That includes half of the girls.

Plus the follow-on price of unwed, under-age births and crack babies, who of course are in foster care, in jail and on welfare faster than a grasshopper can jump.

Critics will say this solution sounds a lot like orphanages. Just goes to show how hard it is to fool someone with an IQ over room temperature. Here's your sign!

Many Proven Benefits of Orphanages

For one hundred years, every single, repeat, EVERY  STUDY has shown that, compared to children who grow up in normal two parent homes, children who grow up in orphanages spend less time on welfare, have lower arrest rates, commit fewer crimes and spend less jail time, and have fewer out of wedlock babies.

Children who grow up in orphanages average a higher level of education, have higher average income, healthier children, fewer divorces, pay more lifetime taxes to support society, and live longer than the total US population.

Which means that children who grow up in orphanages do as well as children from two parent 'normal' homes, and better than many of children from 'normal' families.

All of which makes children who grow up in orphanages into fantastically better, more productive and happier citizens than children who grow up in foster care.

If you will permit a small joke, the statistics almost suggest most children from average homes would turn out better in an orphanage. Just joking!

Unfortunately, Frank Lynch cannot work full time on this most worthy of charities right now, because it is more important to save all American children than to just save a part of children. And Franks Heros and the University seek to save all American children and to put American Families First.

Frankskids will go forward, but the next 18 months must be focused on the total Nation.

We beg those of who feel strongly about Frankskids, do not wait the 18 months. Donate Now! Frankskids exists as a program within Frank Lynch University, so our Teachers College can provide student volunteers and teachers in training for the specialized care of the children.

Please help the most helpless children lost in the foster care system
