Upcoming Broadcasts

On the 10th episode of Ask a Foster Leader, our panel of former foster youth and foster youth advocates will discuss Normalcy Laws and their implications on the lives of foster youth, foster parents, child welfare professionals, and all others who are involved in the foster care system. How will normalcy laws affect the relationship between all of those involved in foster care? What are the pros and cons of Normalcy Laws? How do we ensure that Normalcy Laws are as effective as possible once they become enacted? How does Normalcy Laws relate to other foster care related issues? We will discuss these questions and much much more, on this special episode of Ask a Foster Leader. Please join us live by calling in to 646-652-2296.
