Watch Our Latest Update: A Pathway from Foster Care to College
The budget is one of the most significant pieces of legislation the Senate works on during the two-year legislative cycle. It invests in Ohioans and in the priorities they've told us are important. One of those priorities is helping children who age out of foster care realize their dreams of college and career training.
For any young adult, attending college and living on their own can be a daunting life transition. For those who have lived in foster care, it’s exponentially so. But we are committed to helping these students achieve their potential, with support from programs funded in the state budget to help meet their academic, social and financial needs.
When several of our state senators visited Cleveland State University recently for a committee hearing, these students and their mentors stopped by to introduce themselves and share how these programs are putting them on a path to their dreams. Watch the video to hear their stories.
