How you make a difference

The funds you raise as part of the Beau’s Oktoberfest Virtual Ride will help youth like Ciizzy find a safe place to call home.

While COVID-19 made it hard for Ciizzy to find a place to stay after she was kicked out of her home, United Way and Youth Services Bureau helped her find housing and a fresh start.

Together with your support, we can provide more youth with opportunities to build a brighter future.

Thank you to our generous sponsors and partners
