Compassion and assistance are greatly needed to fight youth homelessness and to create healthy youth development. In 2013, a total of 1,902 youth were tallied as homeless in San Francisco and many more remained uncounted and hidden. (SF Board of Supervisors’ Budget Committee hearing on Youth Homelessness, 5/18/14.)

Donations that we raise make a significant difference as the funds are transferred to supporting organizations, such as Huckleberry Youth Programs, La Casa de las Madres and Larkin Street Youth Services which deliver much-needed services to local youth! These agencies provide food, emergency shelter that leads to longer term housing, counseling, education, health services, job skills and economic empowerment.

San Francisco is one of the richest cities in the world. Please help us to ensure that every young person here has the opportunity to make a successful transition to adulthood.
