The Faces of Foster Care – Ohio HB 50/SB 240 is Now Law!!

Category : Foster Care

From our friends at OACCA:

Earlier this week, our Ohio Fostering Connections campaign released a video titled “I am the Face of Foster Care”. The video raises awareness of the challenges faced by youth who age out of foster care. Specifically, the bill calls on Ohio legislators to support HB 50 / SB 240, legislation that would extend Title IV-E funding for community agencies to serve these youth.

The video was created with the help of three alumni of foster care and the Ohio Youth Advisory Board. Here’s a link to the video.

UPDATE:  We are pleased to report that this has been signed into law!!!!  Great work all!!
