Thanksgiving dinner gatherings offer fellowship for foster youth, alums

Those who have experienced foster care firsthand know that the holidays can be a harsh reminder of lost connections. That’s why ACTION Ohio is hosting early Thanksgiving dinners for foster care teens (ages 14+) and alumni (ages 18+).

At these dinners, foster youth always have a seat at the table for Thanksgiving. Registration is free, but mandatory. Agencies and adult supporters are encouraged to share the regional posters below or this statewide schedule, as well as provide transportation if possible.
