June is National Reunification Month
excerpt from CWLA, The Networker - June 5, 2019
June is National Reunification Month, a time to raise awareness about the importance of reuniting children and families after experiencing foster care. It is also an opportunity to recognize the people and efforts around the country that help families to stay together. Consider nominating a "Reunification Hero" — anyone who has gone above and beyond expectations to preserve families. Visit American Bar Association's Center on Children and the Law - National Reunification Month for information, and also find resources on promoting and supporting reunification.
