Craig Leren's Fundraiser:

Pathfinders Year End Campaign

THE STORY:

I've been working at Pathfinders at a little over 6 years now, which says a lot for why I feel passionate about helping ensure the success of the organization. There are FAR too many young people here in Milwaukee that face challenges that many of us cannot truly comprehend. Human trafficking, homelessness, unemployment, lack of education, lack of supportive healthy adult figures. As a 29 year old, I would be horrified to have to experience  any one of those things, and every single day here in MIlwaukee there are hundreds of young people, all under the age of 25, that have to navigate those issues; often a combination of all of those and usually entirely on their own.

Pathfinders is one of the only places in the city that these young people can turn to and truly get help. There are people that work here that are true hero's in my eyes, and have a passion for doing everything they possibly can, at any given moment, to make sure a young person can be helped when experiencing a moment of trauma and crisis. 

Working towards real sustainable change amongst young people in Milwaukee is one of the only ways I can truly envision our community fixing it's major problems. If you've read this far, please consider supporting Pathfinders, as I can vouch from lots of experience, it really does make a difference.

Join us this holiday season and help us reach our year end campaign goal! Due to a few  very generous donations, we are excited to announce that every contribution made up to our $50,000 goal will be matched dollar for dollar! 

The need for your continued generous support has never been greater:

Nearly 500 youth are homeless and on the streets on any given night in Milwaukee, yet our supportive housing program waitlist is three times greater than our current capacity.

Milwaukee leads the country in alarmingly high rates of teen pregnancy, infant mortality, and youth unemployment.

Human trafficking has reached levels that make Milwaukee a national hub for the exploitation of youth.

And the results of your investment have never been more inspiring:

Our work is recognized nationally by HUD as a model program for its effective use of rapid re-housing for ending youth homelessness.

Our Housing First approach is embraced by the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families and promoted across the State as an effective youth-centered and trauma-informed strategy.

Our evidenced-based interventions have reduced infant mortality to 0% for the young parents served in our Rosalie Center home visiting program.

Every one of our youth deserves a caring adult in their lives.  Thank you for being that caring person.  Thank you for being the change we need to see in the world.  And through your generous donation, thank you for helping support Pathfinders as we continue our mission ofEmpowering Youth and Changing Lives!
