“I’ve built a fence around me to keep myself protected from people who try to hurt me. With help, I want to get into Job Corp and turn around my life. I think I can do it and I keep looking forward. They say that Hell is a place, I think my life since four was that place, but I am finally starting to see something better, that feels good.” ~ secure care youth
Your gift sparks change
Your gift provides vital services and support to at-risk youth and families in our community. Last year we were able to help 2,362 people because of individual gifts like yours.
- Contributions are the reason we were able to help Johnny become more independent by purchasing an electric wheelchair so he could get around by himself.
- Gifts helped Sarah gain her diploma because she could afford to go to summer school.
- Funds helped baby Jackie, whose head was misshapen because of neglect, receive a helmet.
- Generous donations provided Goodwill vouchers for clothes and a supply of personal beauty items to Lily and Tracy who arrived at Tom and Mary’s home with only a few essential items.
These few examples are why your gifts mean so much to the youth and families we serve. Together, we can spark change to build a community of hope.
The Kids Fund is a service of EmberHope’s Youthville program. This helps ensure resources are always available to cover the direct needs of children and families not covered by state funding and program grants.
