Program areas at Family and Youth Initiative

Family and Youth Initiative helps teens in foster care find adoptive families and develop lasting connections with other caring adults. Monthly program events bring together teens and adults to form relationships. We recruit and train volunteer mentors and host families; and match teens with adults based on relationships that form at events. Youth who age out of foster care continue to participate with DCFYI and keep their connections for as long as they want. Every participating teen or young adult develops at least one meaningful and lasting relationship with a caring adult.
In the Open Table program, six to eight trained volunteer Table Members build relationships with and support one young adult in achieving whatever goals the youth has set for themselves.
The Reimbursement Program reimburses youth for critical needs related to housing, transportation and job-related expenses.
