$1 Million Fund Created to Help Foster Children


Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine took to Twitter Thursday morning to express his concern for what he is calling a “foster care crisis.”

He says there are 15,000 children in the Buckeye State that are in need of a home.

He attributes most of this to the growing opioid epidemic.

DeWine was in Youngstown on Thursday, where he announced that a $1 million fund will be created to help place these children in homes.

He has also directed BCI to expedite background checks for prospective foster parents.
