Plummer Home works with young people in the foster care and juvenile justice systems. Many of them have experienced trauma beyond what most of us can imagine. They may have been victims of or witnesses to violence, or have lived amidst addiction. Some were neglected, weren’t fed, or weren’t nurtured. Others may not have experienced such extreme trauma, but were in volatile situations.
One of the tools we use to help kids move forward from these experiences is music. Music helps them heal. It gives them the courage to cope with personal histories filled with pain and loss. It is cathartic.
This Key of C campaign is a fundraiser for Plummer's music program. It helps us keep music in the lives of kids that would otherwise not have that option.
This holiday season, please donate to Plummer's music program.
Young people who leave the foster care or juvenile justice system without safe, stable & permanent family connections face grim outcomes, including high rates of homelessness, unemployment, early parenting and lack of education.
Plummer is determined to change that by deeply and effectively engaging families for each young person we serve while building their skills and community connections, and by sharing our knowledge with others.
Where we do it:
- Group Home for 12 boys between 13 and 18 years old.
- Supported Apartment for young men ages 16–22.
- 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.
- 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.
