What a gift can do for a child at Youth Homes.
Will provide a special activity for one child. Studies shows extracurricular activities improve self esteem and growth for children. At Youth Homes, we want our children to have the same opportunities that we want for all children.
Will provide a warm winter coat, gloves, hat and a scarf for one child. 70-75% of our children in care come to us from families that are at or below the poverty line.
Will provide quality one on one time once a week for a year for one child. Over 90% of the children that come to the Youth Homes have suffered from abuse or neglect and have extreme difficulty trusting adults and developing healthy relationships.
Will provide groceries for one group home for one month. As the cost of living increases, the rate the Youth Homes gets paid from the state has remained flat for over a decade.
