On June 8th, TeamChild Director of Policy and Advocacy will participate in the Senate Human Services, Reentry & Rehabilitation Committee’s work session on the existing systems of care for youth and the transitional/supportive services for youth exiting JR facilities and youth aging out of foster care. The agenda will be as follows:

Panel 1: Agency perspective on youth exiting public systems of care

Panel 3: Advocates and stakeholder group discussion on how to be more supportive of those individuals exiting JR and foster care.
