As we all navigate this new reality of "social distancing," the hard reality of our former foster youth is that they're losing their hourly wage jobs and so many don't have family to help.

THRU Project staff, our dedicated board, and our caring mentors are all working together to help our youth through this. We even anticipate a surge in local youth who haven't yet joined our program, but will now because they need assistance, 

As of right now, we are asking for monetary donations so that we may purchase grocery gift cards for our youth who may be struggling. 

We thank you for any support you can give. No amount is too small; everything helps!
