LSEM Hosts Older Homeless Adolescent Task Force Quarterly Meetings For Advocates And Service Providers
To bring together advocates for older homeless adolescents and provide networking opportunities for advocates and services providers in this critical area, Legal Services of Eastern Missouri's (LSEM) Homeless Adolescent Task Force will hold quarterly meetings in 2012. |
The next meeting is set for Thursday, July 26. All meetings begin at 9 a.m. at LSEM headquarters, 4232 Forest Park Ave.
Organizations that participate in these meetings are primarily those that provide direct services in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area including mental health, medical, and educational services, among others, to the population of older homeless adolescents some of which are involved in the foster care system.
"We see this as an opportunity to share information and learn from area advocates and other service providers," said Amanda Schneider, of LSEM's Children's Legal Alliance. "The ultimate goal is to ensure everyone involved will be able to deliver the highest quality service to older homeless adolescents in the area."
