ADVOCATING FOR OUR FAMILIES

Frankfort, October 2018

Advocacy Meeting with Deputy Secretary

and Governor Representatives

Melinda McGuire and Becky Mullins met with officials in Frankfort on October 2, 2018 in efforts to create a stronger partnership with Cabinet officials by giving a voice for the children in out-of-home care and their caretakers.  Deputy Secretary Putnam is very positive in regards to re-establishing the connections with the state association.  Also in the meeting were the advisors to the governor, Christopher and Alisha Johnson.  The role of that state association is key to recruitment and retention of quality foster homes.

Additional Meetings in the Works

Fostering Futures-KFACA is anticipating additional meetings with Cabinet representatives and regional associations.  Planning is in the works.
