In 2014 we identified a need with teenagers aging out of the Foster Care system not having a solid foundation in which to begin their adult lives. We partnered with AMP to provide Suitcases full of starter home supplies such as bedding, cookware, etc. and in 2014, a check for $3000 from the appeal at our annual Charity Ball.
In 2015 we began a partnership with the Job Foundation assisting them with their events by providing dinners to the families and volunteering at the event. They were also the recipient of the appeal at Charity Ball 2015 and were provided a check for $1500.
Y.O.L.O. Yes (You Only Live Once, Youth Empowerment Series):
