From a Former Youth in Care in our DCFS Program:

“It was helpful being able to relive my past. I was able to bond with my sibling about some of the memories it brought back up. Reflecting on all the adversity I’ve been through gives me strength and confidence. When times get hard I remind myself that I’ve been through worser and get through it. Being incarcerated I’m able to get a true account of my childhood trauma and use it in my clemency petition.”
