Welcome Sign Going Blue for Foster Kids

The iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign became blue Wednesday for National Foster Care Month.

May is dedicated is raising awareness of the 400,000 children and teenagers in foster care around the country.

In Clark County, more than 3,000 children are in foster care system on any given day. Many of those children cannot return home because their families are in crisis.

"We really need to get more of our community together and try to help the foster kids that are out there. My foster parents have been the most amazing blessing to me, and I just love to see all this advertisement for it," foster child Anny Anderson said. 

The county's Department of Family Services would like to people to be aware of the ways they can help these kids in need.

"If you cannot be a foster or adoptive parent, you can still make a difference in the lives of children," said County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly. "Be a Court Appointed Special Advocate, a coach, a teacher or a mentor. The impact is significant,"

The lights on the famous sign will be blue through May 7.
