A very special THANK YOU to the many sponsors and volunteers who made the holidays possible for hundreds of families in our community. You helped to further a community effort to ensure every child has winter essentials and to fulfill special holiday wishes in support of our Holiday Gift program.
The Holiday Gift Program helps under-served families who look to Youth Services for support. All recipient families have a child or children enrolled in either our Boys & Girls Clubs, Study Buddies, mentor program, individual and group counseling, Pride youth, or crisis intervention services. The families whose wishes you helped to make possible rely on the simple fact that Youth Services never turns anyone away based on ability to pay.
In FY19, more than $240,000 in mental health counseling was allocated to scholarships for children in need of these services who could not afford them otherwise. This is in addition to the myriad of free programming these children may receive through the other services we provide – all made possible by agency friends like you. If you would like to support Youth Services and the services we provide, please consider making a donation using the button below.
Here are just some of our wonderful volunteers from 2019!
