Reforming Child Support Policy for Child Welfare-Involved Families

Work alongside Prof. Berrick in efforts to identify opportunities for reform to child support policies in several U.S. states so that parents whose children are placed in foster care are liberated from paying for their child’s stay in out-of-home care.

Message To Sponsor

I would love to take the opportunity to thank my donor for allowing me to continue research directed at helping folks who have been impacted by the foster care system. With your help, I continue gaining hands-on research experience and am changing the system I was placed in at only five years old. I have been motivated to continue doing this work and because of your generous help I am able to do so!
