Child Advocates Counting on the Legislature to Address Critical Gaps in the Governor’s Budget
Children’s advocates are troubled by the absence of funding targeted for the state’s most vulnerable children and youth – those in the foster care system – and are now counting on the Legislature to address critical gaps.
The time is now to address urgent unmet needs of children who have suffered abuse and neglect and for whom our public systems of care must step in to act as parents.
Help change the foster care narrative through the media, our elected officials and your own personal involvement.
Fostering Media Connections harnesses the power of journalism and media to drive public and political will behind policy and practice that improve the well being of children experiencing foster care.
