Missouri Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the "paycheck protection" bill Tuesday, but he also signed legislation covering a broad range of issues. The bills and a short description are summarized in a news release on Governor Nixon's website:
Foster care can be difficult for many reasons: stress on the family, forced assimilation into a new environment for the child and a lack of resources can create problems for those in the system. But what you don’t always hear about is what happens to the kids who age out of the system at 18.
These teenagers are often thrown into an adult world with adult problems, including how to make ends meet. But, one St. Louis foundation is helping teach the former foster children the financial lessons to succeed after foster care.
