Fostering Change Podcast | A Foster Care Journey and How Change Must Happen to the Broken System

Jerold Hawkins was introduced to Rob Scheer and Comfort Cases in 2023 when the company he works for, Aptiv, held a “Packing Party,” packing up backpacks filled with new essential items to be delivered to local social service agencies for distribution to youth entering foster care in Michigan.

Following the event, Jerold reached out to us because he wanted to share his story: his experience in foster care, moving to a variety of homes over a 5 year period – recalling “all my life’s belongings dumped into a black trash bag.”

Jerold shares his journey with Rob and also his now mission to help make positive change to the foster care system.

We know you’ll enjoy today’s episode.

A reminder that Fostering Change now posts on alternative Tuesdays. Our next episode will drop on April 9!
