Coalition CareLine Story (Educational Advocacy Support)

A foster parent has four children and only has her laptop to share with the entire household. Trying to work, maintain the household, and educate her children completely overwhelmed her. After receiving the email about the Coalition CareLine, she immediately called to see if there was a way to help.

Our educational advocates sprang into action, sending emails and calling the children’s school to get a laptop or two in the home.
