...to the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, who advanced their grant process to provide WRYM with $10,000, and to all the other individual donors who combined have provided our guys with another month of care.
A fact (or two)
Since March 1, 2020, and the onset of COVID confinement, WRYM has successfully transitioned to housing 11 young men. This may seem few - but I ask you to consider the exponential numbers of lives changed over time as a result. Minimally, please note that homeless male youth are 8 times more likely to die than their peers.
“Adolescence” is defined as the period between childhood and adulthood, a gap youth are not mature enough to deal with alone. Without question, premature babies are given special care to survive. Should not youth forced to become adults prematurely also receive special care?
AND, did you know?
Canada’s Volunteer Awards provide that recipients can identify a not-for-profit organization to receive a grant (link). Nominate a volunteer by Sept 30, 2020.
