BROOKLYN - Members of the Foster Parent Advocacy Foundation rallied against what they are calling “system flaws” at Kings County Family Court in downtown Brooklyn.
They demanded more support services for kids aging out of the foster care system. The foundation claims that the Administration of Children’s Services (ACS) and its attorneys have allowed foster kids to fall through the cracks when they turn 18 years old.
“It is ACS's job and the contract agencies to make sure these kids get proper services as well as housing when they discharge out of foster care,” said Dorin Matthews, of the Foster Parent Advocacy Foundation.
The foster care reform campaign will hold protest rallies in the five boroughs through August 16.
