SERVING THE RUNAWAY YOUTH
The good, the bad and the different. Our country has experienced a multitude of changes over the past decade. A devastating market crash; overnight ruining lives and displacing families. The first president of color sworn into office. The legalization of same sex marriage, finally! The Cubs winning the World Series for the first time in 108 years. An overwhelming display of horrendous acts of terrorism, just to name a few.
We live through the ups and downs of life, of which at times, we have little to no control over. Fortunately, we have the ability to choose to take action and help bring about necessary changes.
The homeless epidemic has continued to grow with the continued fluctuations of our economy coupled with the lack of assistance necessary to combat the issues faced by those struggling with homelessness. Did you know that 1 in every 30 children were homeless at some point last year? These are a helpless population that rely on adults to make good decisions on their behalves and to provide for their basic needs; shelter, food, clothing, etc. It is imperative changes are made quickly in order to protect and provide for these children.
You may think the issue is too large to conquer or you may think that the amount of money and time you are able to donate is not nearly enough, but this is untrue. The cumulative efforts of individual volunteerism and donations combined with organizations established to assists in the fight against homelessness will make the difference necessary. No amount is too small in joining the fight to combat this epidemic! Find out how your small contribution can help by visiting our fundraising page at
