Bob Boone, President of the Bernard McDonough Foundation and John Leite, Director of the Mid-Ohio Valley Substance Use Disorder Collaborative will brief attendees on their collaborative efforts to engage foster care providers and related organizations, and we will also hear from Steve Tuck of the Children’s Home Society of West Virginia on changes, challenges and opportunities in foster care. We will also provide time for peer sharing, to learn more about what projects are underway to strengthen foster care in the state.
