Forum Will Focus On the Foster Care System in New Jersey
WALL, NJ - Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini and Assemblyman Declan J. O’Scanlon, Jr. will host a forum on protecting New Jersey’s Children on Tuesday, May 25, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at the Eatontown Municipal Building, located at 47 Broad Street in Eatontown.
“I look forward to hearing the views of the professionals who work closely with New Jersey’s youth,” said Angelini. “Children placed in the foster care system are in desperate need of support and guidance. It is vital that we work to improve these programs to provide these children with a safe and enriching environment.”
The session's goal is to come up with positive suggestion to make the system a better place for our most vulnerable children. Officials from various state children’s groups have been invited to share their stories and suggestions.
“This will be a great opportunity to highlight the need to protect our state’s most vulnerable youth,” said O’Scanlon. “I am confident that this forum will enable us to come up with ideas on ways to improve and protect the children in the foster care system in New Jersey.”
