May – Our “Give Big” Month
As members of the South Lake Union Chamber of Commerce, we found an incredible organization that helps vulnerable youth, as young as 14 up to 24 years of age. Serving downtown Seattle and the U-district, YouthCare provides food, shelter, assistance with meeting education goals, life and job skills training, counseling services, and more. These caring individuals might be the lifeline for a young person who finds she has few options. They have successfully engaged with the community to bring volunteers in to provide food service, and other mentoring opportunities. Lakeview served two lunches this month. We learned how powerful YouthCare’s programs are in engaging youth on the edge.
