Supporting foster care

Photo from Alaska Public Media’s Community In Unity program entitled Fostering Our Future, which discussed the foster care system.

The Office of Children’s Services isn’t alone in taking responsibility for child welfare. Volunteers also step up to oversee the foster care system, suggest policy changes, and advocate on behalf of individual kids. Join us on the next Talk of Alaska as we discuss community oversight of the child welfare system and ways you can be part of the solution.
