Fostering Change Podcast | Overcoming the Challenges of Youth Exiting Foster Care with Eshontee Rowe, Amerigroup GA Families 360

Comfort Cases is thrilled to be working with the team from Amerigroup Georgia Families 360° on a powerful new initiative. Launched at the start of National Adoption Awareness Month, Comfort Cases and Amerigroup Georgia Families 360° are committing to get a Comfort Case(™) to every youth in foster care in the state of Georgia, finally ending the practice of black trash bags being given to youth who are entering or transitioning into foster care.

This first-of-its-kind initiative showcases the power of collective action and sets an inspiring precedent for other states to follow.  To learn more about this exciting and groundbreaking program, and how you may be able to help, please click on THIS LINK, or visit our website.

On today’s episode of Fostering Change, Rob Scheer speaks with Eshontee Rowe, a member of the Amerigroup Youth Advisory Board.  This dynamic young woman sets the standard for what being a “Good Human” is all about.

Eshontee not only amplifies the voices of young people who have faced adversity but also actively engages in crafting solutions to enhance the lives of those presently affected by the system. Yet, her dedication extends beyond these roles. Eshontee also serves as a member of Foster Youth In Action’s People Agenda Team, an international network of independent foster youth-led groups across the U.S. and Canada, where she diligently works to bring about positive change within the foster care community.

Rob and Eshontee’s conversation will truly motivate you to go out and get things done.  We encourage you to share today’s podcast with your children and young colleagues.  It’s people like Eshontee will truly change the world.
