THE STORY:

Friends and Family,

On April 18th I will run the 120th Boston Marathon on behalf of the Plummer Boys Home in Salem, Massachusetts. The Plummer Home provides life changing support, services and housing for children who need families. In addition, it gives foster children the support necessary to successfully navigate to a healthy and productive adulthood. It also strives to find them permanent families before leaving the foster care system.

This is my second time running for the Plummer Home. After last years terrible winter - with record snow and cold, with falls and frostbite, I swore that this would be my first and last time running Boston. However, over the past year I have come to know the Plummer organization; it's staff, the board, and the children and I knew in my heart that I had to run again! The Plummer Home is truly a remarkable organization with an ambitious vision "That every young person has a family unconditionally committed to nurture, protect and guide them to a successful adulthood".  Just imagine - never knowing the love and support of family.

With your help we can make this vision a reality for the many children in the foster care system. Please join me in supporting the Plummer Home by donating to my run. Your donation - every cent - will go towards bettering the lives of these children. Your donation will go to items both big and small, from movie tickets and a new pair of sneakers to camps and tuition to helping track down lost family members.

SO PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DONATE!!! BECAUSE ALL CHILDREN NEED FAMILIES.

Many Thanks and Much Love, 

Marci

 

PLUMMER HOME FOR BOYS wrote -

Plummer Home serves young men and women who have been bouncing around the foster care system for years, or who are at risk of entering the system. We find them families, teach them skills and connect them with community.

Founded in 1855, the mission of Plummer Home is to provide adolescents innovative support and services, in a safe and nurturing environment, to build the relationships and skills necessary for successful adulthood.

Why we do it

Because annually, more than 23,000 youth who have been living in group care or foster care leave the child welfare system with no permanent family.

By age 24:

  • Almost 4 in 10 will experience homelessness
  • More than half will be unemployed
  • 2/3 of the girls will become pregnant

How we do it

Our holistic Model of Care is focused on:

  • Finding kids permanent families
  • Preparing kids with skills, and
  • Connecting them with their communities

Where we do it

  • Group Home for 12 boys between 13 and 18 years old.
  • Supported Apartment for young men ages 16–22. On same premises as Group Home.
  • Community-based 1-bedroom apartments for young men or women who turned 18 while in group care or foster care. 
  • Foster Care for girls and boys birth to age 22, though we prefer to work with older youth. 
  • On Point Teen Resource Center for youth at risk of being removed from their families for having minor brushes with the law. Also serves neighborhood youth.
