December 2021 Happenings

End of the Year Giving Campaign

We are incredibly thankful to all those who participated in our End of the Year Giving Campaign. Your generosity helped us raise over $80,000! We’ve had a couple of difficult years due to COVID, and this money will help us provide all of the services that our kids deserve and need including trauma/abuse focused treatment, educational and job search support, individual/group/family therapy, onsite psychiatric consultation, substance abuse treatment, grief and loss counseling, school enrollment and advocacy,
healthcare, anger and behavior management, and life skills training. We appreciate and are incredibly thankful for your support!

Thank you to all of our Holiday Gift Sponsors for making the holidays brighter for our children!

Celebrating our Young Mothers

Hearts and Homes loves to take any occasion to celebrate our youth, and the holidays create the perfect chance. We held a Damamli Day of Thanks to recognize our Damamli Independent Living Program mothers and the amazing jobs they do as young parents. Our incredible community partners joined in to make the day extra special with a nail salon, professional portraiture, great food, and gorgeous decorations!


Coats for  our Kids!

We are so excited and grateful to receive these coats from The Children’s Charity Foundation’s Coats for Kids! These stylish coats were much needed to help keep all of our kids safe and warm this winter. The Children’s Charities Foundation has distributed brand new winter coats to more than 27,000 children from 30 charities in the metropolitan area valued at more than $810,000. Thank you to this incredible organization for partnering and helping us once again!

Congratulations to LaVance Gholston, HHY’s Training Coordinator, for his 20 years of service and dedication to our youth! We appreciate you!
