ASAP Kick Off

The Ohio chapter of Foster Care Alumni of America is currently working with Alvin Mares and Tim Conrad on a Columbus-based OSU pilot project involving transitional youth called the Alumni Peer Support & Assistance Project (ASAP).

On Jan. 31st, Lisa Dickson co-facilitated an all-day workshop at OSU for professionals and youth from Starr Commonwealth, Viaquest, YEP and Rahab's Hideaways.

The first two organizations work with foster care youth, the youth from COHHIO's Youth Empowerment Program will have experienced homelessness at some point in their young lives, and Rahab's Hideaway works with young people who have sought survival in the past by turning to the sex trade.
