Thank you for supporting Young Families and attending the Spring Gala on April 13th. You made it a night remember. Together, we raised $91,572! We are blown away by your generosity.
Originally, our fundraising goal on Friday was $50,000. This amount helps to cover operational costs of Young Families weekly programs, weekly diapers and baby supplies for moms in crisis, and transportation to and from programs (which can be a major barrier for some young parents).
Our “dream goal" was to raise $100,000. This amount would mean Young Families can continue to help build resilience in young moms and dads through long-term healthy relationships, as well as offer free counselling to help deal with childhood trauma.
We know the most significant offset of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is genuine, healthy relationships. We’ve seen generational cycles of poverty and trauma broken and ACEs scores decrease because of the Young Families community.
We’re less than 10% away from hitting our “dream” fundraising goal. If you didn’t get a chance on Friday night, now’s your chance to give!
Thank you for partnering with us. We are grateful for your support as we work together to help break the cycle of poverty for Young Families!
