Candidate for state representative Sara-Summer Oliphant meets with constituents

Sara-Summer will fight for Pennsylvania children and families impacted by the opioid epidemic.
The number of children entering foster care due to parental drug abuse has more than doubled nationally during the last two decades.

  • Nationally, 40 percent of foster kids are living with Reactive Attachment Disorder.
  • ​Currently, Pennsylvania lacks proper support for foster and adoptive families to seek necessary mental health care.
  • Sara-Summer wants to introduce legislation that would give foster and adoptive families more resources to support their children with severe developmental disabilities.
