Foster Care Advocacy Day: A Huge Success!

Thank you to our families, team and partners for a very successful advocacy day today! With over 30 participants, we met with over 20 legislators and staff to share experiences and insights into foster care and adoption.

Our families shared their experiences and how the General Assembly can work to solve some of the issues they’ve faced in the past and improve the system. Our team and community partners shared their professional experiences and how we can work to make the process of adopting from foster care smoother and reduce the trauma to children in foster care.

Following our morning meetings, Delegate Bourne introduced Children’s Home Society on the House Floor, recognizing our 120th anniversary (which is tomorrow!) and the work we have done over the past 120 years. Thank you to all of the legislators and staff we met with this morning! Everyone was engaged and passionate about solving some of these issues. We look forward to seeing forward progress this session!
