Forum on state foster care at Central Baptist

A community forum about Groovy Girls, a project that focuses on empowering girls in state foster care, will be held on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 11 p.m. at Central Baptist Church. Kerrie Wentworth, director of foster care and permanency supports for the Rhode Island Care Management Network, will discuss the program. Several Rhode Island agencies created Groovy Girls to help improve selfesteem and establish consistency for all youth in state care. Central Baptist is also collecting art and school supplies for girls in the program. Donations may be left at the church. For more information, call 423-1651.
