Youth Programs


Backpack Buddies "Dress for Success"

  Since 2004, the Backpack Buddies "Dress for Success" program

  has been established as a pillar supporting youth with shoes,

  uniforms, school supplies, undergarments, and other

  necessities. The 2022 event served 1,100 youth. Additional kids

  are provided these resources throughout the year through

  their schools.

Hygiene Kits Program

  Hygiene kits feature a reusable clear zippered pouch, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant,          toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, body wash, and brush/comb to provide essentials to those        who need them. 


                                                         Coats for Kids Program

                                                               Coats for Kids was designed to provide youth with either a                                                                     warm coats or school logoed sweatshirt for winter. The                                                                           sweatshirts meet the dress code requirement at many                                                                            schools in the area as they are school logoed. 


Teen Shopping Night

  Kicked started from a grant from Kohl's Cares from the Heart;

  the Teen Shopping Night was developed to provide High School

  students with a $100 Kohl's gift card to purchase needed items. 


Immediate Need Fund

  Serving as gap funding for pants/shorts needed by youth during the school year, the                immediate need fund allows staff to purchase items requested by the school for individual    youth. The fund allows staff to timely respond to requests for assistance for youth in need.
