With May being National Foster Care Month, this week on Helping Hand join HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence as he welcomes back local nonprofit Hale Kipa. We hear about some of the many services they offer to at-risk youth and their families, but today focus on the topic of foster care and their need for foster care families, with Hale Kipa Foster Home Developer Jessica Carter.
Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing statewide on HPR1 stations Fridays as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then Helping Hand appears online here, where all of our Helping Hand segments and resources are archived. Every week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and people and animals among the most vulnerable.
