BENEFITING: GO CONNECT INC
The Summer-a-thon is a one month campaign, during July, to build capacity to serve more students with a place to live and a familiy to care for them. We have just completed our first official year of The Refuge, connecting homeless high school students with host families empowering them to graduate from high school and give them a fighting chance. The program costs $250 per month per student to pay for the expenses associated with the program (case management, insurances, host training and outreach, etc.). We hope to raise $24,000 which will allow us to increase our student count for a total of 8 students throughout the year. This year 4 students were able to earn their diploma and we hope to have twice that many this next school year. The Refuge is a program of Go Connect.
