BENEFITING: IMPACT LIVING SERVICES
Big Acts of Kindness Come In Small Packages.
In March of 2015, the daughter of ILS's Director of Behavioral Health turned 10 years old. When her father asked what she wanted for her birthday, she did not give a typical answer. Instead, she asked her party guests to bring donations to support teens in foster care. The items received were donated to Impact Living Services and used to create care-packages for youth entering our Independent Living Program. As a result of this thoughtful and generous act, Impact decided to carry on this mission and pay-it-forward. Impact has since worked to collect donations to create small, meaningful care packages for youth aged 17-20 who are preparing to age out of foster care. Your donation can help continue this project.
Virginia leads the nation in the percentage of youth that are aging-out of foster care, 1,400 youth or 28% of the total foster care population in VA are aged 16 and above. These youth need our help.Consider donating and allow these young adults a bit of added comfort as they prepare for their next journey.You can help make an Impact on foster youth as he/she makes the transition to adulthood.
