NFYAN Board Member, Johnny MadridWe at the Action Network are very proud of our Board members for their hard work, dedication and passion for our mission. While we get a chance to know them as members of the Action Network family, it is wonderful when they get publicly recognized for their community service and commitment to making the world a better place for foster youth. We are thrilled that Board Member Johnny Madrid is getting some much deserved attention for his various activities that support several foster youth causes, including the Action Network. See this article for a snapshot of one of our leaders and a true champion for foster youth.

Congratulations, Johnny!
