Our goal: Raising $19,000 for our 19th birthday!
Last year, thanks to many generous donors, we met our goal of raising $18,000 for our 18th birthday. This year, our goal is to raise $19,000 for our 19th birthday. We need your help to do our work. Please donate to support our participants as they struggle to avoid homelessness and we provide invaluable advocacy for our participants long-term.
