Grassley-090507-18363- 0032From Press Release


Sen. Chuck Grassley and Sen. Debbie Stabenow, leaders of the Caucus on Foster Youth, today announced a panel discussion on homelessness among foster youth.   Homelessness and unstable housing are serious problems for the approximately 23,000 youth who age out of the foster care system each year.   The panel discussion will take place on Friday, May 15, 2015, at 10:30 a.m. in 226 Dirksen Senate Office Building (Judiciary Committee Hearing Room).

This is the second panel discussion Grassley and Stabenow will have hosted during National Foster Care Month.  A panel discussion last week focused on promoting policies that allow grandparents or other family members to care for foster youth.   A third panel discussion in the works will focus on trauma-informed care.
