If you listen to The Krush this week, you might hear a special appeal from Asia, a young woman who worked in SAY’s Summer Jobs Program earlier this year. If not, you can listen to the spot below:
700 that’s how many kids are sleeping on the streets of Sonoma County tonight.
Hi I’m Cat, of Social Advocates for Youth. Meet Asia, an at-risk youth helped by SAY’s services.
“I was introduced to SAY through my probation officer. I started off doing the Summer Jobs Program. We did creek maintenance. Basically, we all became family.”
“I needed to make money because my mom was going through breast cancer, and I needed money because I have four little sisters. I would definitely recommend SAY. They helped me out so much. I am no longer on probation, my life right now is probably at it’s best. I pay bills and I’m really proud of myself.”
Help SAY get homeless youth off the streets and into jobs or back into school. Invest in our community’s future. Your donation is fully tax deductible, and it makes a difference.
