Making Kids Count


This week on our Advocate Virtual Forum, we discuss supporting youth aging out of foster care in Kentucky. Thank you to our panelists, including Nikki Thornton, Executive Director of True Up; Paula Garner, President and CEO of Maryhurst; and Cynthia Schepers, a young adult who aged out of foster care. As of April 2021, True Up is officially an affiliated initiative of Kentucky Youth Advocates to expand on the organization's successful track record of engaging, empowering, and connecting young people ages 16 and older who are currently in or have transitioned out of foster care. Thank you to Aetna Better Health of Kentucky for supporting the Making Kids Count podcast.
