Youth Villages starts with YOU.
Join the 2021 Spring Challenge to raise $1 million for at-risk youth to access the critical life-changing services of LifeSet. Your IMPACT WILL BE DOUBLED with a matching gift from the Youth Villages Massachusetts and New Hampshire Board.
The demand for LifeSet services has increased throughout the pandemic and there is a surge in mental health crises throughout the community. Youth Villages provides critical and essential services to help young adults work through life’s challenges as they transition to independent adulthood.
LifeSet also helps these young adults avoid homelessness, incarceration and unemployment. Youth Villages is filling the gap in services created by the pandemic and is there for life’s hardest moments. With your help, we can give even more young people the gift of an independent and rewarding future.
Why we need YOUR help!
Imagine you are 18, about to age out of foster care and have nowhere to go and no one to help you. What would you do? Where would you turn? This is the reality for young adults who need LifeSet.
Our clinical team has continued to provide essential in-person services alongside telehealth throughout the pandemic and has been the critical lifeline these young adults need.
In 2020, more young people needed our services than ever before. Youth Villages saw unprecedented demand and experienced a 20% growth in our overall services. We need your help to meet the increased demand for the essential services that will directly impact the lives of young people who rely on LifeSet to reach their full potential.
Jose’s parents had a violent relationship and his dad struggled with substance abuse. Jose supported his mother and little brother through the ups and downs with his dad. He had to take on an adult role within his family and was forced to grow up a little quicker as a result. Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Jose worked in a local restaurant. His job was crucial for his family as he and his mom were the sole providers for the household. He took it upon himself to provide as much as he possibly could for his mom and younger brother. But, the crush to the economy brought on by the coronavirus led to Jose getting laid off. Jose grew increasingly concerned about how his family would survive without his income. Jose’s LifeSet specialist helped Jose find a new job and Youth Villages helped Jose and his family meet their basic needs by providing gift cards for groceries and essential items.
