CAT worked with the clients I served-adolescent girls in foster care that lived in residential treatment. It was amazing to see their transformation as they participated in new experiences that put them in situations where they had to work together, trust each other and communicate effectively. At the end of our time kayaking one of the girls stated, "I wish we had our own kayak--it's such a good coping skill for me!" There are not many other nonprofits that are giving youth in need such a unique and life changing experience.
