Support Needed

Please remember the needs of our community continue to grow. So our fundraising effort continues as well. Please check out our ‘Donate Now’ page. There you can make contributions through out the year.


The Coalition counts on your ongoing support to continue our youth programming throughout the year. These programs are desperately needed since the community is so low on resources for our children. The community currently does not have a library or youth center to help keep our children safe and off the street.
