“At first I thought DCFYI was just another program pretending to have a passion for helping kids. On my first event in 2015 I immediately knew they were more and really had the passion for it. They welcome every teen with open hearts and arms, it was a different environment. I can say I am really thankful to have been introduced to DCFYI. It was always a good escape from some of the bad foster homes I’ve been in. And for that I’m thankful.
