We are honored that the readers of Bittersweet Monthly selected Family & Youth Initiative as this month's featured organization.
Bittersweet Creative uses beautiful photos and prose to quickly tell the story of "organizations doing inspiring and much needed work in response to the critical social issues of our day."
Their DCFYI story is magical, using the experiences of two DCFYIers, Robert and Dayar, to tell the bigger story of challenges faced by young people who age out of foster care and the impact one committed, caring adult can have.
“Brian helped me get into Duke Ellington School of the Arts. I wouldn’t have applied if it weren’t for him. That changed my life. He pushed me to do it. He helped with everything. He helped me with my homework, took me to shows across town, took me to my audition.”
Please read the story and share with others.
