Homeless Youth: Give Help, Give Hope

$35- Provides a homeless youth with a survival care kit.



Courageous Hearts Youth Services, Inc.
 is a for purpose, non-profit organization with a mission to Educate And Empower at-risk youth for a life of success and fulfillment. 

Our Ignite Hope Campaign focuses specifically on Homeless Youth.

The biggest risk of all for these youth is a loss of hope. Through acts of kindness, we can help to fan the in-extinguishable flame of hope that resides within the hearts of these courageous and resilient youth.

We have two upcoming Empowerment Events as part of our Ignite Hope Campaign for homeless youth in the city of Los Angeles, May 22nd and June 22nd.

These events are a powerful way that we are supporting youth in their day to day survival, and also supporting them in taking clear, inspired action forward.  

Our intention is to provide longer term, high-quality support through individual life coaching. Our master's level, trained mentors are standing by! In this initiative, we want to teach them how to fish vs giving them a fish.

What is a Courageous Hearts Empowerment Event?

We will be sharing our kindness through Survival Support Kits for homeless youth, and are also empowering them with life skills and tools for responsible citizenship, including a referral for job placement where applicable.

Would you be interested in making a meaningful difference in the lives of these homeless youth?

If so, we invite you to participate with us, pictures from these events will be shared with all donors.  *All donations are tax-deductible.
 


Empowerment Event #1 
On May 22nd, we will be partnering with the Homeless Education Department at Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to celebrate 85 homeless youth who have managed to graduate high school despite the day to day adversity and sometimes horrific enviormental conditions they have faced and overcome.  

There are 13,000 homeless youth currently in the LAUSD school system.

Your donation will enable us to provide them with much needed Survival Care Kits (items listed below) as well as the book, Guided by Your Own Stars, by Christy Harden (generously donated by Maurice Bassett).  This book is an empowerment tool for connecting with one's inner wisdom and in moving in the direction of heart-felt dreams.  

We will also be referring them to a partnering agency where they will receive support with job preparation and placement. 



Empowerment Event #2- June 22nd. We have partnered with the Covenant House in LA, who's mission "Is to protect the rights of young people...to speak for those who have no voice of their own."  We will be providing 70 homeless youth with Survival Care Kits, as well as Empowerment Tools focused on personal responsibility and achieving career objectives.

We will also be refering these youth to a partnering agency where they will receive support with job preparation and placement.
