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

Posted Mar 28, 2019
Lily is a student from Washington 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!

Lily is 24 years old and lives in Seattle, WA

Lily has a bachelor’s degree in human services and Spanish from Western Washington University and is currently pursuing a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Washington. As a foster care alumna, she is passionate about finding solutions to the issues surrounding child welfare. She has policy experience on the state and national level, most recently working on the Indian Child Welfare Act and TANF child only grants with Partners for Our Children. Lily has also worked closely with individual foster youth and families as well as students experiencing homelessness through her employment with Secret Harbor, Futures Northwest, Child Protective Services and as an AmeriCorps volunteer.
