Support Basic Needs
As a lifelong social worker, I have become keenly aware of the needs and challenges of children in the foster care system. And, as a parent, I know how difficult it can be to navigate the road to adulthood even when resources are available.
When there is no support available, basic needs go unmet and kids have nowhere to turn.
– Susan Karas, Board President
