The Junior League of Cleveland is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
On Tuesday, December 1, 2015 the Ohio House of Representatives voted 91 to 2 to pass House Bill 50. HB50 will now be referred to the Senate. Both HB 50 and companion bill, SB240 will move forward in the Senate. If this legislation passes the Senate it could be signed by the Governor in early 2016.
Please email your Senator to let him or her know you support House Bill 50 and Senate Bill 240. You can find legislative contact information here. And don’t forget to thank your State Representatives for voting for the bill. Show your support on social media using the hashtags #SupportHB50, SupportSB240, #OhioReadySet21
Each year, more than 1,000 Ohio youth “age out” of foster care at age 18. Research tells us that these young people are at high risk of homelessness, unemployment, insufficient education, dependence on public assistance, human trafficking and other obstacles to success.
