Miami-Dade County has been struggling with the shortage of foster parents for years. Florida Foster Care Review and its collaborators are bringing together the Dade County community for a panel discussion to emphasize the dire need for foster parents to provide stable, loving homes for our community's most vulnerable children. Many people in the community are unaware of this issue and we hope to gather, connect, but most importantly inform all locals of this issue. We hope that this panel discussion moves us to mobilize community members, destigmatize the foster care system, and advocate for Miami’s foster youth.

To register for this connection experience, send an RSVP e-mail to mleichter@fostercarereview.org.  (Only 40 slots open, so register quickly!)
