Finding Home: A podcast on "what is foster care"

Recently, a public talk radio show in Michigan called State of Opportunity produced a podcast on Michigan's foster care system. The podcast interviews a foster family and follows them in their day to day activities on a quest to get a detailed look into how it is to be in foster care. 

Give it a listen!  and afterward let us know: Do you think this accurately captures what it is like to be in foster care?

 

Clothing Drive for Michigan Foster Youth

Here's an article from the Daily Tribune:

Kids Planet Resale owner Pam Feldman has a lot on her plate, but that hasn’t stopped her from taking on one more thing: a back-to-school clothing, uniform, and supplies drive for metro Detroit-area foster children.

The drive is the 2nd annual effort held by For The Seventh Generation, which matches donations of goods and services with foster children, foster families, and teens both in and aging out of the foster care system.
