The Tough Work Is Far From Over - A kid looking confidently at the camera.

The stress of the pandemic is weighing on many kids in our region. It’s affecting their mental health and their ability to stay on track in school.

We know local love lives here. And together, we can ensure our communities overcome the tough challenges the pandemic has amplified.
With your help, we can take the lessons of the pandemic and build a brighter future for youth in our communities. Your donation will:
  • Increase programming to support early learning for vulnerable children.

  • Provide in-person and virtual activities like after-school programs and summer camps.

  • Increase mental health and crisis supports.

  • Reduce problematic substance use for youth, including supports for those who are experiencing homelessness.

You can give kids the tools and support they need to succeed in school, and in life.

We’re learning to carry on, but the needs haven’t gone away.

You can make a difference in the lives of kids across our region. Give generously today.

Your donation is in good hands.

We invest your gift in smart, strategic ways, to ultimately move the needle.
