HRC’s All Children – All Families program assists child welfare agencies across the U.S. in supporting and serving LGBT youth and families.
Chris Downs of Downs Consulting Group LLC, the project’s national training director, has been training child welfare professionals in Anchorage, AK the last three days.
The NBC affiliate in Anchorage, KTUU, aired a story featuring Edie Bailey and her husband who have fostered more than 30 foster kids, 10 of whom were LGBT.
The video also features the All Children – All Families training effort and discusses the importance of providing safe and affirming placements for LGBT youth in foster care.
