AMP visits with DHS Director Foxhoven - AMP | Achieving Maximum Potential

AMP visits with DHS Director Foxhoven


        AMP youth met with DHS Director Jerry Foxhoven to discuss issues that youth face in Iowa's child welfare system.  Mr. Foxhoven is a true advocate for youth and has been a believer in youth voice since 2005 when the foster care youth council began.  He told AMP teens he will promote AMP when he is "out and about" talking to social workers to encourage they send their foster teens to AMP council meetings. Director Foxhoven will provide input to Chief Justice Appel about how children need time with their guardian ad litem (GAL) and how youth are important clients in court proceedings.  He also provided a resource to help AMP write policy ideas into actual bill format through the Drake Law Center.
