Raising Pennsylvania's Children Requires Support, Resources And Existing Family Relationships
As many as 15,000 children are in Pennsylvania's foster care system at any given time, and a disproportionate number are often African-American. How can existing family relationships be better resourced and supported? And how can society better help kids transition from foster care to adulthood?
Today's guests weigh in, including:
- Scott Hollander, executive director at KidsVoice;
- Jennifer Pokempner, child welfare policy director at the Juvenile Law Center;
- Dr. David Brock, vice president of FACE department with A Second Chance; and
- Anne Schlegel, Children, Youth and Families assistant deputy director, who heads up fostering and adoption for the Allegheny County Department of Human Services.
