Foster Families Take Advantage of OCFS, State Parks Initiative

A camping program offered by OCFS and State Parks is being hailed as a success. The agencies, with support from The North Face, gave foster families gift cards for free two-night stays at any State Park campground, and all 135 of them were scooped up in six days! OCFS handed out the cards on a first-come, first-serve basis to foster families new to camping or looking to re-connect with nature.
