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 partners and sponsors 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.

2018 Early Thanksgivings for Foster Care Teens and Alumni:

  • NE Ohio Thanksgiving in Cleveland: Saturday Nov. 5, 2018
  • SW Ohio Thanksgiving in Cincinnati: Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018
  • SE Ohio Thanksgiving in Athens: Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018
  • Central Ohio Thanksgiving in Columbus: Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018

We welcome, and deeply appreciate our sponsors.
