The Chronicle of Social Change – July 31, 2017
Offer funding for foster youth mentoring programs on college campuses. Require that any college that received federal financial aid has to establish a single point of contact (SPOC) model for students who were previously in foster care. Require that, for any child who acknowledged being in foster care on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the university contact the student to ask if they would like to be identified for additional supports.
