Hamilton was once in foster care and now that he’s an adult he still stays in touch!
"The program overall is something to be thankful for. My favorite part would be how the program connects youth with mentors and sometimes even connects mentors with other mentors or connects youth with other youth. You can gain something from each other.
My favorite memory would be giving my speech at one of the DCFYI fundraising events. I spoke about how for me I don’t really have just one mentor because everyone at DCFYFI is my mentor. At different points, someone contributed.
I gained a lot of connections through DCFYI. Having all of these people contributing to my life is my favorite memory because you never know what will happen. I still have a lot of people reach out to me on occasion to check in.”
