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

Posted Mar 28, 2019
Sheree is a student from Missouri 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!

Sheree is 23 years old and lives in Saint Louis , MO

Sheree received her Master of Social Work degree in December of 2018 and is currently pursuing her second, a master’s degree in social policy, at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. As a foster care advocate, she conducts research and presents policy recommendations to strengthen supports for foster youth who age out of care. She has also worked as a youth mentor at a local non-profit in North Saint Louis for three years. Sheree is a champion for social workers becoming leaders in the policy field.
