Regional Thanksgiving dinners offer fellowship, food for foster youth
The tradition continues! Early Thanksgiving dinners will be offered regionally next month for foster teens and young adults.
For the past eight years, Thanksgiving has been a time for foster youth, alumni and allies/adult supporters to gather and share their voices, insights, talents and goals for the future.
Regional dinners are open to current foster youth age 14 and older as well as to older/former foster youth age 18 and up. Guests are welcome; registration is free but required.
