Project Blue was developed by CYC's Sonoma chapter as part of Foster Care Awareness Month. On May 27, go blue to stand in solidarity with those who have been impacted by foster care and to show your support for the 640,000 youth in foster care in the United States.Change your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media accounts profile picture blue. Project Blue's mission is to stand together; as communities, corporations, celebrities, faith groups, sports leagues, schools and simply as humans, to send a message of solidarity to those who are currently or have been in foster care.

Did You Know...
...that in 2000, language was adopted into the California state budget that states that "California values the input of foster youth into the development of child welfare policy and CYC is the vehicle to provide that input." This language establishes CYC as a central sustainable player in the development of child welfare policy in California and is a model for other states.
