From a former youth in care client in our DCFS program:

“For years I have struggled to pull all the missing pieces of my journey together. I didn’t know several details about my entry into care or early details of my parents. When I became an employee at DCFS I felt as though I needed a better understanding of my past in order to get through my own traumas and be more affective as an advocate in my current role and to promote change for what I look at as my “siblings” or our current youth in care. This along with the support of my family, friends, co-workers, etc. helped me get to here I needed to be. Thank you!”
