BENEFITING: YOUTH EMPOWERMENT SHELTER
EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2015
MY BIRTHDAY IS SEPTEMBER 1. What I want more than anything in the world is a home that would be an available shelter for the more than 400 to 500 youth in the Mid-Columbia area that don't have safe alternatives to living at home in situations that they find intolerable. Being homeless for even a short time leaves them vulnerable to unthinkable abuses. We are planning for a place where they can find physical and emotional safety while we assist them to work out the difficulties they are facing or explore acceptable alternatives. We have staff and volunteers ready to help. We just need the building. IF WE CAN FIND $35,000 BY MY BIRTHDAY, it can happen!
