The importance of helping homeless children is obvious. Many children are placed in nearly impossible situations during their youth, and the outcome of those situations can leave the children out on the street without a place to live. If you feel compelled to help homeless kids but are not in a position to serve as a resource parent, making a financial donation is a great option.
Consider Giving To The Solutions for Youth Fund
To put your dollars directly to work to help homeless kids, please consider the Solutions for Youth Fund. We created this fund specifically to aid homeless children in our area. The fund operates by working through high school counselors while keeping the identity of the child anonymous. Counselors are able to identify whatever needs the child may have, and the fund’s resources are then used to purchase those items.
A Needed Boost
Giving to the Solutions for Youth Fund is a great way to help homeless kids who are struggling here in our region. Something that might seem relatively small from the outside – such as the ability to pay for a social or athletic opportunity – can mean a huge difference to a child in this situation.
Being able to participate in the same activities as their peers can be a boost to self-esteem, opening social life and future opportunities that may have been closed off otherwise. As we do not currently have physical space available to store donated items, the best way to contribute to this important cause is to make a financial donation.
