Foster care crisis forcing hundreds of kids to sleep in offices as officials seek solutions!

In the year ending June 2022, 503 children in foster care spent at least one night in county government offices across Ohio, according to a state report. Dozens more youth stayed in hospitals even though they weren’t sick and there was no medical reason for them being there. (Candisky, 2023)
