Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are cancelling this year’s Spring Celebration.

As public health officials assess the risk of COVID-19 we are closely monitoring the spread of the virus. We continue to provide our services remotely and are working to evaluate the implications for the youth and families we serve, our dedicated staff and our donor community.

Raising funds to support young adults aging out of foster care is more critical now than ever. In this time of economic hardship and the unprecedented health crisis, our youth and families are struggling. They are facing job loss, limited access to transportation and lack a familial support system. They need food, shelter, guidance and stability. We need your help to support their needs and provide the life-changing services of our LifeSet program to an additional 100 young adults in Massachusetts by raising $1,000,000.

It saddens us to cancel this special event and we are currently in the process of exploring other ways to share the important stories of our youth, families and young adults. Please check your email and our Instagram page @youthvillagesMA_NH for updates!
