Congratulations to Lynn Tiede, who marked two major accomplishments in our nation’s capital.
On Monday, May 6, she led a national policy campaign launch at the U.S. Capitol for the Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative called Success Beyond 18. The campaign aims at increasing public understanding of the unique needs of young people transitioning from foster care, and promoting positive policies.
On Thursday, she testified before the Committee on Ways and Means of the U.S. House of Representatives at a hearing titled “Letting Kids Be Kids: Balancing Safety with Opportunity for Foster Youth.”
Way to go Lynn!
