We're ready to go...AGAIN!
April 27, 2016

After several starts & stops we finally have two comprehensive estimates to make Milly's Place a reality. We're about $20,000 away from our  See more

BENEFITING: ONE SIMPLE WISH

EVENT DATE: May 31, 2016

THE STORY:

Each year over 20,000 kids age out of foster care with little to no support. If you look at the stats, their futures look grim; homelessness, incarceration, drug abuse...but at One Simple Wish we work hard to change that. And we believe wholeheartedly in the kids we support.

Introducing Milly's Place - a residence unlike any other. This isn't a group home. This isn't a residential treatment program. This is a home.

Milly's Place is a two-bedroom home in Trenton, NJ where, each year, two young women aging out of foster care will get the support, stability and resources they need to become amazing, productive and successful adults. Each young lady will receive two years of rent-free living, a paid internship at One Simple Wish (in walking distance from the home), Sunday dinners with our team, category-based mentors and access to transportation, job training, nutrition counseling and so much more!

And we need your help. Thanks to our amazing friends at Wells Fargo we got the home, some money to rehab it and their volunteer support. But we need more financial support to turn this into home and more volunteer support too!

Manual labor, painting, decorating, landscaping...we need it all. We had a few setbacks with two General Contractors unable to sucessfully get the project going. We now have two very detailed estimates that total over $50,000. The breakdown is available to anyone who requests it. If you are able to donate the items or services, please contact us at info@onesimplewish.org and we will deduct that amount from our fundraising goal.
