Why Leslie is thankful for DCFYI!

“I have been part of the program since 2017. My top two favorite things about DCFYI are that I met my mentor Maggs and she is so helpful; she helps me with everything. The second is the other youth I've met, I have made some great friends through the program.

"Before Covid-19 I went to some of the events like the Birthday and Christmas ones. The last one I went to was right before Covid-19. I like to go to DCFYI events to see certain people I have met through the program. My favorite event is kickball, I love kickball.

"DCFYI is a great program and they really show that they care, you can be in any kind of situation and they will pull together to find a solution to help you, no issue is too large for them to help you.”


In honor of Thanksgiving, we are doing a story campaign, “Giving Thanks for Lasting Relationships,” where we highlight what DCFYI youth are thankful for!
