Billionaire author J. K. Rowling just brought her nonprofit stateside; decade-old Lumos works to keep kids out of institutions, integrated with family and community.

"'Harry Potter' author J.K. Rowling is hoping to tap into America's philanthropy and international reach as she launches the U.S. arm of her nonprofit Lumos that works to keep disadvantaged children with their families and out of institutions worldwide. Rowling was in New York City on Thursday to mark the start of Lumos USA, and said in an interview with The Associated Press that she is certain Lumos can solve 'the problem of institutionalization' by 2050." -- Deepti Hajela, US News & World Report
