HELP us House Homeless Youth
$57 will house, feed and support a youth for one day and our immediate goal is to secure 4500 nights of housing. Some of you may want to give on at a higher level and we ask that you consider a week of housing for $399 or a night every month for the next year for $684 or 100 nights of housing at $5700.
Your donation will make a difference in the life of a homeless youth. Please take the next three minutes to learn how that $57 donation will impact a youth's life.
At the re-dedication ceremony in October 2010, Shannon spoke about a young gang member she once worked with who turned his life around, but lacked a stable home life and wound up getting killed.
"I swore that day I would do everything in my power to make sure that never happened to another child," she said. "I don't think there's any greater honor than having this center named after me."
Shannon lost her battle with breast cancer on November 30, 2012. She was 45 years old.
On the anniversary of her passing, as we move forward with construction plans for our all-new 120 bed youth facility, we will continue to operate in memory of Shannon by continuing our work with homeless youth in her honor.
Your donation of $57 will help us continue honoring Shannon and her passion for homeless youth.
