Inside Ohio’s Foster Care System

Posted Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

When it comes to the foster care system in Ohio, it's often the abuses that grab headlines - but they don't really tell the whole story. For example, in six years, Cuyahoga County Children's Services has cut in half the number of children in custody. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll get the view from inside the state's foster care system. We'll hear from foster parents and foster children, and we'll find out what goes into helping kids in custody build new lives. That's Tuesday morning at nine on 90.3.



Foster Care - Jim McCafferty, dir, Cuya Co Children & Family Services; Alice, Richard & Randy Rowe, East Cleveland family; Larita Burk, former foster child. BioLabs Departure - Chris Coburn, president, CCF Innnovations.
