BENEFITING: Alternative House
Our agency will donate $10 in YOUR name to support local families and teens from at-risk situations. Alternative House started in 1972 as a small shelter for homeless and runaway teens and has expanded to offer services for at-risk youth and their families. Now known as Second Story, the organization has not only remained true to their original goal of providing shelter for teens in crisis but also expanded over its 46 years of service to the community.
Going about your day when you do not have a safe space to return to can be traumatizing. “Our community is in need of some TLC. 1 in 11 youths under 18 in Fairfax County live in poverty, with 1,059 homeless, 32% of which are under 18, it is time we help out. We know how hard life can be and want to do our part in changing the world.”
We are looking to provide housing, food, clothing, safe havens, crisis services, counseling, and life skills training to homeless youth in need.
