(This amendment provides an additional $250,000 each year from the general fund for Volunteer Emergency Families for Children, a nonprofit organization which maintains a shelter care network for abused, neglected, runaway, homeless, and at-risk children and youth throughout Virginia. This funding will be used to fill vacant program coordinator positions serving the Eastern Virginia Region; the New River Valley Region; the Richmond Metro Region, and the Southern Virginia Region. Funding will also allow for expansion into two new program areas, the expansion of recruiting techniques through media outlets; the update and expansion of training for volunteer host families; and funds for emergency needs of children and youth in care.)
