Maryland Public Television documentary on foster care will anchor event
BALTIMORE (Nov. 18, 2008)—Maryland has launched a campaign to aggressively recruit foster and adoptive parents to care for the over 9,200 children in the State's care. Towards that goal, Lt. Governor Anthony Brown is joining with Department of Human Resources Secretary Brenda Donald, Maryland Public Television, and various community partners to host a live phone bank on Thursday, November 20. The phone bank will be conducted in conjunction with the airing of the documentary, Foster Care Stories: A Place to Be, produced by local Academy Award winning-filmmaker Bill Whiteford.
