GATHERED BUCKET CHANGE AND IN-KIND GOODS FOR STEADFAST
Steadfast will provide safe housing in a caring, supervised and home-like environment for unaccompanied homeless youth and for youth transitioning out of foster care.
Their purpose is to provide safety and stability for the growing number of youth encountering homelessness by providing safe housing. Using a holistic approach, we address the individual needs of each youth, provide character building activities, mentoring, educational and life-skills programs as well as counseling and connection to resources in our community. By increasing stability in their life we empower the youth to create their future story and reach their greatest potential as healthy, independent adults.
THE WISH LIST of in-kind gifts for Steadfast can be found here.
Bucket Change collected for Steadfast during Lent totaled $800.00, which will be presented to Steadfast’s leadership. Please contact Kelly Christiano if you have any questions.
