The Seattle Post-Intelligencer investigates King County's "critical shortage" of foster homes and "its impact on foster children." The investigation found that the county has seen an almost "30 percent drop in the number of foster homes over the last five years.... As needs grow and the number of available homes drops sharply, the state's stopgap measures leave abused children at risk of being abused all over again."
