Restore Hope Summit Back for a 2nd Year

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.-  Leaders put aside religion and politics on Thursday to improve the lives of foster kids and ex-cons.

Governor Asa Hutchinson's second Restore Hope Summit brought pastors, politicians and businessmen together under one roof.

There they were working on solutions to move more children out of the foster care system and send less reoffenders back to prison.

Hutchinson touted the improvements made since the first summit saying that it's ultimately saving lives.

"That's the type of difference your engagement can make. On the front end with children, on the backside of giving people a second chance. So I'm here to say thank you for what you've done."

While they still have a long way to go, the governor says there are now more foster homes for kids and more jobs for ex-cons.
