Youth Homelessness - Social Media/PR
David and Margaret's mission is to empower children, youth and families through culturally diverse services that foster emotional, educational, spiritual and identity development through services including: foster/adoption services, residential services, and support services across our 17.5-acre campus. Ettie Lee is joining David & Margaret in our efforts to fight homelessness in the TAY population. Their mission is helping vulnerable children and their families develop skills to lead successful lives. Saving Lives, Changing Lives, Building Hope for children and Families. The proposed VISTA project aligns with the Economic Opportunity focus area. The VISTA project will seek to leverage resources, increase effectiveness, create linkages in the community and scale our programs in effort to decrease poverty and homeless. We expect to benefit an estimated 2,000 community members throughout the three years. Four VISTA members at David & Margaret Youth and Family Serviced and Three at Ettie Lee will contribute to the goals of the project by performing the following activities fundraising, outreach and recruitment, technology development, program design and building awareness through social media and other communication platforms.
