Event description

Description

A generation of West Virginia's kids is drowning in the devastating effects of the opioid crisis. Many have no permanent place to call home, no stable, caring adult in their lives, and no plan to get back on their feet. They float between government systems that they rely on for care -- like schools, foster care, or child welfare. A growing number of kids are homeless, living in extended families, in foster care, and in residential facilities. Some even stay in WVDHHR offices and hotels.

What kind of childhood is this?

Come discuss problems and solutions with a panel of experts from systems that serve our kids-- health care, public education, child welfare, and foster/kinship care. Attendance is free. Refreshments provided.
