Positively interacting with the homeless/at-risk youth teaches our  youth about the everyday struggles some of their peers or other youth in the community are faced with. We teach them not to bully because they don’t know what their situation is and to be more understanding and open minded. It helps our youth to be more humbled and appreciative for the opportunities they have and to learn to lend a helping hand.

Homeless/At-Risk Youth Program Description
Our Homeless/At-Risk Youth Program is accomplished by partnering with local nonprofit organizations:
