National Adoption Month focuses on older youth in foster care

All year long, SCDSS works diligently with community partners to find families that best match the unique needs of every child awaiting adoption. November offers the chance to join the USDHHS Children’s Bureau’s efforts to increase awareness and bring attention to the need for permanent families for children and youth in foster care. This year’s national theme, “Youth Voices: Why Family Matters,” emphasizes the need to secure safe and stable family connections for older youth and teens.

Fall back! Spring forward! Why is this still a thing?
Dear Letter to the Editor:
There is a national movement called #locktheclock. Currently 40 states are debating the time change issue. It’s about a 50/50 split among the states favoring full-time Daylight Savings time or full-time Standard time. I have been working on this issue for a while now. Polls show that a majority of people prefer to stop changing their clocks. That is why I introduced Senate bill 11.
