What’s Happening With CYC
CYC's Office Has Moved!!!
After 12 years in CYC's Mission Street office in San Francisco, as of May 1st, CYC's headquarters will now be in Oakland! Although we will miss San Francisco dearly, we will be across the Bay Bridge, exploring our new home in Oakland. Our new office is right off 19th Street BART and has plenty of street parking, so please come on by and visit our new place! Please note that that our address has changed but our phone number has stayed the same.
5th Annual Culinary Inspirations Was a Success!
A HUGE thank you to the 250 people that came out to support CYC in our 5th Annual Culinary Inspiration's event in Los Angeles. The event took place on Wed.

A special thank you to our event sponsors: Barry and Wendy Meyer, Janet and Ian Teague, David and Jody Lippman, Berkshire Hathaway, Wells Fargo and Gray Plant Mooty. We are so appreciative of everyone who supported the event. Thank you!
CYC's Annual Foster Youth Shadow Day!
CYC is proud to annouce that the 2014 Foster Youth Shadow Day was a success! The two day event which took place May 6-7th, in Sacramento, started with a Foster Care Select Committee Hearing. The following day, the 35 youth participants were matched with Assemblymembers and Senators. CYC members had the opportunity to shadow their legislators, learn about the legislative process and get to know their local legislators one on one. We are grateful for our event sponsors, community partners and multiple legislators that helped make this event possible.
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.
