“I am writing to offer our sincerest thanks for your recent donation of individual donation of hygiene bags. this donation will benefit our street outreach team who will hand them out to the homeless youth in our community on a daily basis. We are most grateful to people like you who make our work and our programs possible through your support.

“According to Riverside County Department of Social Services, there are an estimated 700-900 youth who age out of foster care each year with 25% of these youth becoming homeless within the first six months. Our Transitional Living Programs were established in response to the growing need for programs designed to assist youth in their movement from the streets into permanent housing and living wage jobs.

“We currently have two Transitional Living Programs (Main Street Transitional Living Program in Riverside and Harrison House Transitional Living Program in the Coachella Valley). Our Transitional Living Programs provide ongoing support in an apartment like setting for older homeless youth between the ages of 18 and 22 who have aged out of foster care, are chronically homeless, or are suffering from a mental or physical disability.

“While in our care, youth receive continuing educational assistance, individualized therapy, financial education, employment assistance, and access to medical and dental healthcare. Our staff is available 24-hours a day to help youth achieve their academic goals, secure employment, and develop a healthy self-perspective for getting through life. The goal of the program is to assist youth in making a successful transition to self-sufficiency through a supportive, residential program. 80% of the youth who complete our program, successfully remain in permanent housing up to a year after exiting.

“We are delighted with the growing number of donors who share our commitment to make a difference in lives of runaway and homeless youth in our community. Thank you again for your generosity.

“With warm regards,
(Signed)
Kathy McAdara
Executive Director”
