Council Hosts Webinar Featuring New Resources to Support Immigrant Youth in Foster Care!


This week, the Council partnered with the Center on Immigration and Child Welfare (CICW) to host a webinar about best practices for supporting immigrant youth in foster care!

You can view our powerpoint presentation here, and stay tuned for the webinar recording! You can also check out the data report that informed our priority here.
