An iPhone for Cal to connect with his family out of state

Posted Sep 28, 2023
Cal came into foster care here in Ohio. His mom is currently living in North Carolina with two of his siblings. He would really love the chance to communicate with them without having to ask to borrow a phone or minutes from one of his fellow foster youth. He is a very outgoing young man that just wants that chance at communication.

Cal is 16 years old and lives in OH

Cal is an amazing young man who lives in foster care. He is trying to be reunited with his mom, who is currently in North Carolina. He is very respectful and helpful in the foster home. He enjoys reading and listening to music. He also spends time with the other foster youth in the home participating in pickup games of basketball and video games.
