Ashley Rhodes-Courter recently earned her Master of Social Work (MSW) at the University of Southern California (USC). She is now running for a seat in the Florida Senate. Previously Rhodes-Courter drew from her experiences as a foster child and turned these into a best-selling memoir, Three Little Words. She also served as the keynote speaker at the 2011 SFCASA Luncheon. Rhodes-Courter knows first-hand about both negative and positive experiences with the social welfare system. Further, Rhodes-Courter currently serves as a foster parent to three children and has now served twelve children total. As part of Rhodes-Courter’s current run for the Florida Senate, she is seeking to bring improvements to the social welfare system and thereby create a better environment for foster children to thrive in. Foster children would benefit tremendously from having Ashley’s voice in government. SFCASA wishes Ashley all the best in her current endeavors and read her article here.
