2015 Ohio CASA Conference

Representatives from the OHIO Youth Advisory Board and ACTION Ohio (Alumni of Care Together Improving Outcomes Now) partnered to make the youth empowerment presentation during the 2015 Ohio CASA conference a success.

Youth panelists included: 

  • Shameka Smith 
  • Brittany Jackson 
  • Hunter Daniels 

ACTION Ohio representatives were:

  • Olena Sowers 
  • Doris Edelmann 
  • Lisa Dickson

Foster care youth, alumni and allies were able to meet with Senator Rob Portman, and thank him for being a champion for our youth -- particularly those who "age out" of foster care and experience couch surfing.
