NYAP – Akron, OH

On Saturday, August 20th, the Akron NYAP office participated in the 2nd annual ‘Summit for Kids’ event, which attracted over 13,000 people to the John S. Knight Center, downtown Akron. There were over 100 booths, family fun activities, educational sessions and live entertainment. All children in attendance received sport bags filled with school supplies and had access to free dental service, immunizations and back to school physicals. Akron’s new CRC, Robert McBride, was on hand to discuss NYAP foster care services with potential new foster families. As a result, 40 families have signed up to receive more information about how they can become a foster parent!
