For a kid, one day can mean everything.

This year, 500 kids and families will rely on Youth Homes for an incredible range of services and care. Their daily needs can be immense and require immense resources — about $250 per day, per kid.

One day of help goes a long way to establishing healthy routines that lead to a child’s success. We need your help to ensure that we can offer all the things big and small that go into helping our kids and families find success, today and for the rest of their lives.

Take a look at what goes into one day of care at Youth Homes:

  • Counseling
  • Skills development
  • Therapy
  • School supplies
  • Structure
  • Shelter
  • Meals
  • Leadership
  • Relationship building
  • Toothbrushes and essentials
  • Activities
  • Snacks
  • Band-Aids
  • Transportation
