TESTIMONIALWe loved seeing the film and chatting with Charrell. Watching "Feeling Wanted" helped humanize foster care for our class, and inspired empathy and lively conversation. Our students loved it!
—- Andrew Hume, Calhoun School
As a social work educator, I am always searching for unique tools that can help facilitate learning. This film teaches important lessons about hope and resiliency, and demonstrates how important these concepts are when working with foster youth."

"The three youth who attended the screening from our mentoring program have all gone through the foster care system. One of them in particular arrived that night discouraged and talking about how he didn't know if he was going to go through with going to college, even though he graduated in June as salutatorian of his high school class. He was hitting barrier after barrier due to family stress and finances, among other things. After seeing the film and hearing the speakers, he told us he was re-motivated and ready to do whatever needed to be done to make sure he is able to go to school. We are proud to report that he will begin his first day of classes at Hunter tomorrow. Thank you for the impactful work you do!"
""Charell Charleston's videos continue to help children in foster care. Thank you. We run a fairly large mentor program for youth in foster care. Hearing of the need and importance of a mentor is key to gaining more volunteers for us. In the same way, her video of moving in foster care WITH trash bags has greatly helped to increase the donations of luggage we received in 2015. Over 1,500 pieces! I look forward to hearing more from Charell....children currently in foster care are very appreciative!"
