Establishing Roots

Establishing Roots is Family & Youth Initiative's annual fundraiser. Proceeds from the reception cover a significant portion of DCFYI’s budget, giving more teens in foster care adoptive families and other adults who will be in their lives permanently to support and guide them. It's a low key fun reception with food and drink, a silent auction, and story sharing by a DCFYI youth and adult. Join us!
