ACTION Ohio was honored to present a workshop for Huckleberry House on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019, from 10:30 am - noon. This invitation came from Kyra Crockett Hodge, who chairs the Cultural Competency Committee. Huckleberry House workers do have some working knowledge of the foster care population – but they want to be as helpful as possible in advocating for this population.
After a discussion of Culture of Foster Care, each participant received copies of the following:
1. OAC rule
2.Life Skills Assessment
3. Youth developed discharge plan
4. Permanency Pact
5. Central Ohio resource list, based on resource knowledge that Ohio teens and young adults in and from foster care have mentioned as being vital to their success
We were incredibly grateful that Chynna Kelley could be there to help talk participants through the complexities of the Bridges program. Her insights were invaluable.
