Housing supplies for Brittney to attend the Foster Youth Internship Program in Washington, D.C.

Posted Mar 15, 2018
Brittney was accepted into the 2018 Foster Youth Internship Program in Washington, D.C. This is a highly esteemed, life-changing youth empowerment program for young adults who have spent their formative years in foster care, offering them the opportunity to intern in a Congressional office for the summer. CCAI provides full service, wrap-around care throughout the internship. However, Brittney will need the essential housing supplies such as bedding, toiletries, a dining set, cooking supplies, and Tupperware to name a few.

Brittney is 20 years old and lives in Ypsilanti, MI

Brittney was in the foster care system in the state of Michigan and is currently a junior undergraduate student at Eastern Michigan University, where she is pursuing her degree in Social Work with a minor in Music and a focus in Child Welfare, Public Policy, and American Government. Her prior experience with the Michigan Youth Opportunity Initiative through the Department of Health and Human Services has been key in prepping her for the Foster Youth Internship (FYI) Program.
