Good morning PACE members,
I hope you are safe and well today. I want to extend an invitation to you to our Baby Shower Briefing on May 5, 2021 at 11 a.m. so together we can Extend the Infant Supplement as a prenatal support for our youth! We will have a number of youth advocate speakers and members of the coalition speak to the issues.
Will you join us for our Baby Shower Briefing for Expectant Youth in Care?
How does the pandemic impact expectant and parenting foster youth? How much does preparing for a baby really cost? In fact, the average cost to meet basic health and safety standards before childbirth is at least $2,000. It is our collective responsibility to ensure our foster youth have what they need for safe and healthy futures - for them and their babies. Healthy Futures for Foster Youth (AB 366) will support expectant and parenting youth to meet these and other needs. Join us to learn more about AB 366 and the needs of youth in foster care on May 5, 2021 from 11-12:30 p.m. For more information about the bill visit https://www.jbaforyouth.org/AB-366/.
