Borja Alvarez de Toledo
On Friday, March 24, 2017 I will be sleeping outside on a park in Manchester to raise awareness and funds to help homeless youth in New Hampshire. This is the 3rd year doing this event, and this year we have the goal of raising $200,000
Let me tell you why we are doing this:
. Every night nearly 300 teens and young adults can be found sleeping on the streets on New Hampshire Often invisible to the greater community, these youth are escaping lives of abuse and neglect and often struggle with mental illness, substance abuse and poverty.
. Every year, more than 1,500 homeless youth turn to Child and Family Services for help. CFS provides survival aid and fulfills basic needs such as food, clothing and medical care. In addition, CFS works to put these youth on a better path through educational and vocational advocacy, mental health and substance abuse treatment, job search and housing.
. We are the ONLY agency in NH that provides these services. without our help, these youth would not have access to services
One night on the street is certainly not the same as being homeless. This event will help to raise awareness of youth homelessness in New Hampshire. Every youth deserves a place to call home.
Please help. We can't do it without your support!
on behalf of the hundreds of youth we serve each year, THANK YOU!
