Please Join Us
for Upcoming "Chat & Chew" Information Sessions

MEE Productions and First Place for Youth (FPFY) invite you to a "Chat & Chew" information session to discuss the type of guidance, structure, support and caring that we, as a community, need to provide to foster youth as they turn age 18.  Our goal is to help them dream big and succeed as they transition to adulthood.

Many foster kids fall victim to homelessness, unemployment and poverty after they leave the system.  We are looking for ways to improve their life outcomes and we would like to hear from the range of social-services professionals and other adults who come in contact or work with foster youth.  This includes social workers, legal advocates, longtime foster parents, school counselors and others.

Chat & Chews are small-group information sessions that last about 90 minutes. We chat, while you chew on some light refreshments; then we have a dialogue about how we reduce the barriers that make it difficult for foster youth to successfully transition into independent adulthood.

We hope you will join us in this important effort.

The sessions will be held October 14th and 16th at the following times and locations:
