Why Be the Difference
Because our community needs you.
The children, youth and families we serve have all been impacted by trauma--trauma stemming from homelessness, abuse and neglect, family discord, and unmet mental health needs.
They need your support to make sure that their urgent needs don’t go unmet.
- On average, there are around 50 households in our county that remain unhoused due to there not being enough affordable housing options
- Many families are dealing with layoffs, reduced working hours, or being unable to work because they need to stay home with their kids due to distance learning or lack of childcare.
- Many of our foster youth are in need of physical outlets to help manage their emotional trauma. Examples include: martial arts, workout equipment, surfboards, etc.
Our campaign is over but our local children and families still need your support to become self-sufficient. Consider joining our FAM community of monthly donors or supporting us with a one time donation
