CBS6 TV STORY – VIRGINIA RANKS 1ST FOR CHILDREN “AGING OUT” OF FOSTER CARE

Meet Mark, one of CHS’s waiting children–and one of many teens in Virginia’s foster care system who is at risk of “aging out” of the system without a permanent family.

CBS6 shares Mark’s story and relates to Virginia’s challenge of finding families for teens before they reach legal adulthood. For children who do “age out” of foster care, their outcomes are statistically dire.

Will Mark’s future “forever family” see this story? We hope so!
