Do One Thing This Weekend

As we countdown till the end of March (and ring in Spring), take some time this weekend to make a difference in someone else's life.
  • Give your kids a hug.
  • Hold the door open for your coworker.
  • Smile at a stranger.
Then share it with us!

Want to lend a hand? Have a skill you really want to use?

We'd love for more people to join our program. Imagine, you could help out with any of the following:
  • Outreach - Direct contact with our kids, providing them with assistance on a weekly basis (Tuesdays or Saturdays)
  • Public Relations - Contacting newspapers, magazines, radio stations etc. to get the word out about youth homelessness
  • Volunteer Recruitment & Retainment - Recruiting new volunteers, recognizing volunteers for their achievements, checking in on volunteers for feedback and suggestions. If you're a people person, you'll love helping out in this area. :)
  • Fund Development - We would love to one day open a full outreach center (we currently have a drop-in center) but we need great people who love to host fundraising events, write grants, or request donations.
  • Marketing - spreading the word through ongoing marketing tools. Love to create posters? Help us out with graphic design. Love to update websites? Write content for our blog, program site, facebook, or whatever.
We have a fantastic group of volunteers and would love to meet more fantastic people.

Sign up for our next info session by contacting (Wednesday, March 17th at 7:00PM).

Of course, we realize everyone is busy so we would also just like to thank you for your continued support. You are the best!
