Nearly a year ago, Doors of Change opened a transitional 18-24 month residential program for six youth. This intensive program provides 24/7 supervision, wraparound services, life skills instruction, job readiness training, health and wellness education, and any needed therapy. Youth in the program are required to work at least 30 hours per week and contribute 30% of their earnings to rent and 30% of their earnings to a personal savings account. The goal is for participants to become self-sufficient and permanently break the cycle of youth homelessness.
Your Giving Tuesday contribution to Doors of Change will help homeless youth get off the streets for good!
November brings us a day for giving thanks (Thanksgiving) and two days for getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday). Now there is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. Each year, on the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global tradition of generosity.
