STAY UP TO DATE WITH WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE FOUNDATION
A SPECIAL THANK YOU
At the beginning of May, with the help of many vendors and special individuals, we were able to raise $12,000 for the homeless youth of Los Angeles. We would like to take the time to thank all of the amazing people who generously gave their time, talents and donations that made this night a success. Thank you all for making a difference and contributing to our fight to help end youth homelessness! #togetherwearestronger #endingyouthhomelessness
A NEW HOUSING FACILITY FOR THE HOMELESS YOUTH FAMILIES OF LA
Earlier this summer we had an exciting meeting with the people at Safe Place For Youth to hear all about their new housing facility for the homeless youth families of LA. After our successful fundraising dinner in May we knew we wanted to give back to this wonderful organization who serves so many homeless youth daily. Of our $12,000 raised The Helton Foundation has pledged to contribute $6,000 to the new housing facility at Safe Place For Youth! Stay tuned for more updates and progress on the new housing facility for homeless youth families.
THE TRANSFORMATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAM AT MY FRIENDS PLACE
The Transformative Education Program at My Friends Place is a vital part of the continuum care for the homeless youth of Los Angeles. This program focuses on helping the homeless youth develop important life skills and employment readiness to help them succeed in society. At times, even when these individuals are on track to success, unexpected bills or situations arise and they are put in a tough spot. With our remaining $6,000 raised from the fundraising dinner in May, The Helton Foundation will be donating to this life changing program at My Friends Place to help the homeless youth of LA.
