2017 Junior League SPAC meeting and Representative Pelanda
Many thanks to the Junior League of Ohio's State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC) for inviting ACTION Ohio (Alumni of Care Together Improving Outcomes Now) to their recent meeting.
It was an honor to spend time with SPAC and with Representative Dorothy Pelanda, who tirelessly champions normalcy and continued supports until age 21 for Ohio foster youth.
When it comes to making sure that effort to extend foster care supports to age 21 moves forward and is funded as needed, Representative Pelanda said that the most helpful thing we each can do is to submit handwritten notes to Governor Kasich, thanking him for his support of HB 50.
