ATC Homeless Youth - Create Decorations for Fundraising Party

NOTE: THIS IS A SEPARATE EVENT FROM OUR USUAL MONTHLY SUPPLY PACKING AT ATC. We are going to help them create decorations for their annual fundraising party later this month. 

ATC reaches out to homeless youth at their point of need (street outreach) and works with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives (see

www.atthecrossroads.org).

Please check in with your event host when you arrive.  It is important to update your rsvp right away if your plans change - they are counting on us for our help.

At The Crossroads works with more than 200 youth every week, providing them with thousands of supplies, and are 100% reliant on volunteers for packing supplies and other needs like this. Helping out frees up ATC's counselors’ time. The demand for daytime 1-to-1 counseling services has risen dramatically in the past couple of years. ATC counselors are incredibly hard working, and are at their capacity.

ATC's innovative model focuses on young people who do not access traditional services and are disconnected from any type of consistent support. They work with young people who others have given up on, who would not otherwise get help. They remove common barriers to service by bringing counselors onto the streets, and shaping support services around the needs of each individual client. ATC's goal is to help their clients build outstanding lives, not just lives of subsistence.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
