The Ohio Department of Higher Education recently named the first group of Ohio colleges, universities, and Ohio Technical Centers to earn the Ohio Reach Postsecondary designation for their efforts to support foster care-connected students. Eight CTCs earned this first round designation.
The Ohio Reach Postsecondary designation is awarded to those campuses meeting criteria that depict their support of students with experience in foster care or kinship.
Ohio Reach is a network of professionals, advocates, and students across Ohio determined to support former foster youth on their education journey. Ohio Reach, administered through the Ohio Children’s Alliance, provides resources to institutions of higher education, child welfare agencies, and foster care alumni enrolled in higher education to support their academic success.
