Amanda's mission statement
Foster care alumni Amanda Dunlap serves as Youth Outreach Coordinator of the Ohio statewide chapter of Foster Care Alumni of America.
This year, Amanda helped to present a series of workshops at the statewide foster care conference, which took place in Columbus Ohio, June 14-16.
Amanda also co-presented a workshop on PTSD and emotional trauma at the fifth annual Casey Foundation It’s My Life conference, which was held in Atlanta, GA from Sept, 30 – Oct. 2, 2007.
On a personal note, Amanda was recently contacted by her biological father, and informed that heart problems are a part of her family history.
Amanda's goals are:
To be healthy, now and later on in life.
To find a supportive circle of relationships and maintain them.
To love myself and others as they should be loved.
To do well in college and become the best social worker I can be.
To support Foster Care Alumni of America in all that I do.
To reach out to young people in the foster care system and make a difference in their lives.
