The alumni movement is so strong: policy, mentoring, advocating and bringing awareness to the issues.Just this week in Texas; policy that passed in this years legislation: a normalcy bill so foster care kids can be involved with extra curricular activities (YES, we had do pass a bill for normalcy) and allows foster parents to have more control and not needing a case workers signature on everything. Thd foster care ombudsmen to be moved from DFPS to DHHS, hopefully youth will now feel more comfortable submitting grievances. Foster care liaisons at institutions of higher learning, so many already have, but we need more. Mandated youth specialist in every region, now there is funding. This week with FCCAN I was able to: assist a single mom with money to re-establish herself, attend Texas CASA board of directors meeting, helping a 32 year old alumni who needs a program to help her gain independence and get out of the small town that holds her down by knowing her past. Also took lead on the Texas Foster Caer Coalition monthly conference call. THUS CONTINUES; our alumni movement.
