Join us for this dynamic and interactive panel discussion in partnership with Maryland Family Network, for and with families in Baltimore City that have benefitted from C.A.S.E. Services. You will hear the sincere and unique experiences of families just like yours, who have navigated the foster care system for their children. They will share their real life stories of challenges and triumphs as they advocated to get the care they needed for their families, and more importantly how C.A.S.E. has helped.

This panel will be facilitated by Shawan Burke, MPH of Maryland Family Network and Jonelle Wimbush, foster/adoptive parent and WWK Recruiter for C.A.S.E.
