Housing Supplies for Anna to attend the Foster Youth Internship Program in Washington DC

Posted Mar 28, 2019
Anna is a student from Florida who was accepted into CCAI’s 2019 Foster Youth Internship Program in Washington, D.C. For 17 years, the FYI Program has been a highly esteemed, life-changing youth empowerment program for young adults who have spent their formative years in the U.S. foster care system. The program offers Foster Youth Interns the opportunity to intern in a congressional office and become published authors of a federal child welfare policy report. To help make this program an impactful experience for the interns, CCAI provides full service, wrap-around care throughout the internship. We need your help to provide essential dorm housing supplies such as bedding, toiletries, plates, utensils, cooking supplies, and detergent in addition to other miscellaneous living supplies. We so appreciate your support!

Anna is 22 years old and lives in Tallahassee, FL

Anna graduated from Florida A&M University with a bachelor’s degree of social science in criminal justice and has since been accepted into the master’s degree of applied social science program at her alma mater. As a member of Florida Youth SHINE since 2014 and the current state chair of the organization, Anna has advocated fiercely for current and former foster youth in Florida and nationally. She has used her voice to advocate in testimonies before the Senate and House of Representatives and fought to pass legislation in Florida that will enhance rights and outcomes for children in foster care. Anna is deeply committed to raising awareness about the unique challenges that foster youth encounter
