Families are struggling with financial concerns, health scares, and emotional isolation. Our programs designed to build resilience, strengthen families, and shelter youth are just as important now as they were when Connections was founded 40 years ago.
To celebrate our anniversary and support the youth and families that rely on us, Connections is launching a special campaign to honor 40 years of connecting businesses, organizations, and individuals to strengthen communities. Our goal is to to recruit one sponsor at $40,000 and 40 sponsors at $4,000. A 40th anniversary donation will be a catalyst to move Connections into the next 40 years
Lives touched by Connections
Helped by Residential Services
Connections depends on state and federal grants as well as foundational support to operate its programs and services across 17 counties. However, the need is too great to rely on grants alone; therefore, Connections also relies on community support in the form of both monetary and in-kind donations.
Funds go to basic services for the kids in our emergency shelters and transitional living program. Food, hygiene products, bedding, clothing, etc.
We provide educational and training opportunities for our residents
We provide counseling services (at no or minimal cost)within the communities we serve
We provide prevention services in the schools/youth empowerment curriculum delivered to classes in the communities we serve.
