BROOKLYN - A number of foster parents rallied today, saying that the Administration for Children's Services (ACS) isn't doing enough to support them.

The foster families rallied today outside of several city foster care agencies to demand more protection and services from social workers.

The foster parents say that the ACS isn't properly preparing them for challenges they may face as a foster parent.

Foster children say their fate isn't much better, they say once they age out of the system, they are cut loose and are offered no services by ACS.
