IYAB + DCS: Virtual Town Hall on the Response to COVID-19

Foster Success is hosting a virtual Town Hall with Indiana DCS and the Indiana Youth Advisory Board. This event will provide a space for older foster youth to learn about the response to new COVID-19 guidelines, the updates on the extension of care, and how DCS is currently supporting youth of color in the Child Welfare system. We encourage youth to come learn, listen and ask questions! 


All foster youth and workers, facilitated by the Indiana Youth Advisory Board Members. Includes guests:

  • Terry Stigdon, Director of the Indiana Department of Child Services
  • Angela Smith Grossman, Assistant Deputy Director of Field Operations
  • David Reed, Deputy Director of Child Welfare Services
  • Anisa Evans,  Older Youth Initiatives Manager

This event is facilitated by Vita Short and Kayla Brewer.


This Town Hall event is facilitated by the Indiana Youth Advisory Board. This is an opportunity to ask DCS questions and learn about what’s coming.
