Miss Georgia promoting support for foster care system

Around 150 children in Glynn County are currently in foster care, but about 73 of those children have been forced to move out of the county to find a home.

Victoria Hill, who is currently serving as Miss Georgia 2019, shared these statistics at a meeting Monday for the Brunswick Kiwanis Club. Hill, who was crowned Miss Georgia in June, is traveling the state promoting her social justice platform, which aims to raise awareness about the needs of the foster care system in Georgia.

“These statistics are really, really sad,” she said. “We need more than 73 homes right now in Glynn County. We need to step up and say, ‘We want to take care of these children.’”
