We help kids by listening to what they need, from their point of view, while also listening to the adults in their life. We care about each of them. Our passion for the children in our care colors absolutely everything we do.

WHAT WE’RE ACHIEVING
We are a group of youth who have come together (with the help of the MAAC team) to discuss the issues we may be having in DFCS. We have been able to discuss changes we want, such as extending Medicaid (health insurance) until 21 on many levels, like at the State Capitol. We are discussing different laws concerning the youth of DFCS. We cannot do many things, all because of our age and circumstances. We are sure that many will agree that no matter how old you are, if it has something to do with OUR LIVES, we should be a part of it. There are so many things we cannot control as youth. We have to let the adults decide for us. It is time we took a stand and let them know that it is our lives and we should have a say. We have also come to realize that even though we have been through so much in our lives, that should not stop us from having fun and enjoying ourselves.
