On June 13, 2016 Gov. John Kasich signed a bill into law that will improve the lives of some of Ohio’s most vulnerable young citizens. Ohio House Bill 50 creates a new program to serve youth who age out of foster care, and those adopted after age 16, through their 21st birthdays. This bill will become a law – the Ohio Fostering Connections Act – on July 1, 2016.
On February 1, 2018 the HB 50 – Ohio Fostering Connections Act went live! Eligible young adults who have aged out of foster care can sign up now at bridgestosuccess.jfs.ohio.gov.
This is an exciting time for the Junior League of Cleveland. This fall we celebrate our 105th anniversary of making a difference in Cleveland. Over the last 105 years, we have delivered many wonderful programs and led key community initiatives that have delivered outcomes that improved the lives of women and children in Cleveland. However, our greatest legacy is the cadre of empowered and effective civic leaders that received their training in the League and have gone on to make sustainable changes in our community and beyond. This is the core of our Mission – developing the potential of women as civic leaders.
