• Be kind to people you see on the street. Sharing a snack, toiletry supplies, or just a smile, helps. • Raise awareness for the issues on social media or in conversation with your friends. • Make a commitment to financially supporting a cause you care about - nothing is too small or too large to help.
Continue to increase funding for our education, employment and behavioral health programs. Without mental health and a career-path, young people may not be able achieve lasting self-sufficiency. Much of the public funding we receive is restricted to housing and does not cover education and employment programing.
