"I'm mad, well not mad, I'm hurt that my mother cannot provide the things we need. The basic things." This was my kid's concern and if you could hear him utter these words, you could almost hear his heart breaking. In working with 'at-risk' youth, there are many individuals I come across with a very different story but one common need- they all want to be loved and feel special. They most certainly deserve that and much more. But what happens when a parent or family member cannot provide the basic needs of a child? How do we prepare young adults to enter the workforce when they don't have interview clothing, shoes, or a pair of socks, maybe they need a haircut. I am not asking they receive the top-of-the line latest Jordan's or to be decked out in Armani, just asking for something they can wear to give them back hope and confidence. Please help me raise funds for Tidewater Youth Services Commission/Reentry Program to continue to assist our youth in any way we can. Any dollar amount will help. I truly appreciate it.
