I was honored to participate yesterday in New Day Youth & Family Services' celebration of their wonderful supporters and their awesome youth members at their Week of Giving taking place through Saturday. I’m always grateful for the energy, enthusiasm & commitment in the building - among leadership, staff, donors & participants. As their executive director SteveJohnson said so eloquently during his remarks, "There's no need to be homeless. And if a youth is homeless, there's no need to stay homeless. We now have the programs in place and can hook you into them no matter what your situation is."
Steve’s approach to helping our kids also just makes sense: find the spark that drives them, help them find just 2-3 meaningful connections in their community, and show them the opportunities that exist for their future. They'll take it from there. We are so fortunate to have New Day serving our community.
Check out the attached flyers to learn more about New Day Youth & Family Services' important work serving homeless youth in our community and how you might get involved this week or beyond.
