Foster Youth Comment On Foster Care

Chris Darling/Wikimedia

Taking children away from their parents and placing them in foster homes can be a bumpy process for all the people involved. 

Just ask the young people who were placed in foster care.  We do just that, in a chat with Oregon Foster Youth Connection

OFYC is an advocacy group made up of current and former foster kids, ages 14 to 25. 

Michelle Palmer from Lane County, who does some national work on the issue, joins us.  Zachary Miller from OFYC's Legislative Action Team joins us as well.
