My work: Reuniting and supporting brothers and sisters placed in separate foster homes to preserve their sibling bonds.
This description of Lynn Price's work was prepared when Lynn Price was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
Introduction
When children are removed from fractured families and sent into foster care, siblings are often separated and lose touch with each other. Lynn Price is reuniting siblings, nurturing their relationships, and changing the way siblings are supported by foster and adoptive parents, the child welfare system, and communities.

In 2015, Camp To Belong is celebrating 20 years! Over 9,000 siblings separated through foster, adoptive or kinship care have been reunited at CTB summer camps and year-round programs. The Camp model is represented through Member Camps in over 10 states and Australia with more planned. Not only do siblings create memories and build confidence, the significance of the sibling bond now has greater impact in legislation, family recruitment and best practice in child welfare.
