Thanksgiving Together

Those of us who have experienced foster care firsthand know that the holidays can be a harsh reminder of lost connections. That’s why ACTION Ohio works with our allies to host early Thanksgiving dinners for foster care teens (ages 14+) and alumni (ages 18+).

As former foster youth ourselves, we want our brothers and sisters to know that they always have a seat at our table for Thanksgiving dinner.  This annual celebration began in 2007, and has continued ever since.
