BENEFITING: THEA BOWMAN HOUSE INC
I am raising money for the Thea Bowman House. You could help out too by donating!
Here is a little about the Thea Bowman House:
The Thea Bowman House has been serving the Utica, NY community for nearly 20 years. They provide quality care to some of the community's most vulnerable children and youth in the hope of breaking the cycle of poverty through a structured program of educational and social enrichment.
Their mission is to provide a safe, nurturing environment to enable culturally diverse children and families achieve their full potential. The foundation of which Thea Bowman House is built isAgape, unconditional love.
They began in 1986 as Agape House, an after school program for latch key children in the west Utica area, and continued to expand our programs, becoming Thea Bowman House in 1996. Today they operate out of two sites in the city of Utica, one at 731 Lafayette Street and the other at the former St. Francis de Sales School at 309 Genesee Street. They currently serve over 300 children ages 18 months through 18 years.
