“Through My Eyes; stories of agony, courage and hope”
through my eyes

“Through My Eyes” is a book of stories written by Ventura County foster youth who have shared their experiences in the foster care system. The book was published in 2011 through the efforts of the members of the California Youth Connection. It is recommended reading for anyone who has an interest in foster youth and wants to learn more.

We believe that “Through My Eyes” will help you learn more about the struggles and challenges faced by foster youth and how their experiences have shaped them into who they ate today and how they will make a positive contribution to their community in the future.

“Through My Eyes” is being sold for $25 a copy, with the proceeds going to California Youth Connection (CYC) Any amount over the $25 goes to help the valuable work being done in our Ventura County chapter of CYC.
