WFTV'S "FOREVER FAMILY" FEATURES NEEDS OF OLDER YOUTH.
WFTV-9 and ForeverÂ Family’sÂ year-end broadcastÂ featured a segment promoting the importance of supporting our older youth in foster care. Â
The 30-minute special focused on steps taken here in Central Florida to set up teens and young adults who have experienced foster care for the same kind of success their peers enjoy.Â Topics covered included Floridaâ€™s pioneering Keys to Independence drivers license program, education and tuition support, mentoring, and otherÂ resourcesÂ essential to helping youth in the foster care system heal and thrive.Â Â
Embrace Families works year-round with Martha Sugulski and our partners at WFTV and ForeverÂ Family to produce a weekly segment that promotes the need for community support, including theÂ ever-present need for mentors, foster caregivers and adoptive parents.
