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

Posted Mar 28, 2019
Anthony is a student from California 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!

Anthony is 29 years old and lives in Sacramento, CA

Anthony is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has a bachelor’s degree in social work from Portland State University. He is currently pursuing a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Michigan School of Social Work. Anthony is deeply committed to improving permanency and stability in the foster care system and advocates for this reform by speaking at conferences, teaching, guest lecturing, and training those who work in the foster care system. With personal experience in foster care for thirteen years, Anthony seeks to influence child welfare reform in order to mitigate the challenges current foster youth face while in the system.
