KidsPeace’s Healing Magazine Explores State of Foster Care on 40th Anniversary


SCHNECKSVILLE, PA (June 4, 2019) – KidsPeace Foster Care celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2019, and the latest issue of Healing Magazine takes the opportunity to look at the reality – and future – of foster care.

Published twice a year, Healing Magazine is KidsPeace’s flagship publication, providing practical and clinical information to families and children’s professionals. In the Spring/Summer 2019 edition, the special section “Foster Care at 40” looks at fostering from a variety of perspectives:

  • An examination of how the service has evolved from the 1970s to today
  • Views of a Member of Congress on how policy initiatives can support families better
  • An hour-by-hour description of “a typical day in foster care” (proving there’s no such thing), by the voices behind the popular Foster Talk blog series
  • And ideas and suggestions from the most important people in the discussion – foster kids

The issue also examines an innovative approach to treating both addiction and underlying mental health conditions, along with an examination of gender equality issues in schools and more.

The new issue is available now on the redesigned site, which allows users to download the whole issue or selected articles, and subscribe to receive paper copies of future issues.


The latest issue of Healing Magazine is also the subject of the next “Conversations with KidsPeace” podcast; to subscribe to the podcast, go to iTunes or Google Play and search “Conversations with KidsPeace.”

KidsPeace also announced that starting June 15, Healing Magazine will be carried in the magazine racks of the Barnes & Noble Booksellers store at the Promenade Shops in Center Valley, PA, as a free community publication. It’s the first time in the 23-year history of Healing Magazine that it will be available in a retail setting.
