Empowering Youth Breakfast Exceeds Goal
Tuesday, 11 July 2017 10:59

Thank you to everyone who attended (or couldn’t attend but donated in honor of) the Empowering Youth Breakfast on April 18th.

When Nan Skelton, who became Face to Face’s first Executive Director 43 years ago, made the challenge in her remarks to “stand with, stand by and stand for the generation that is inheriting the world we are leaving them,” 278 people in the room responded with donations and pledges of nearly $160,000—exceeding by 60% our goal of $100,000! We thank the table hosts and everyone who donated for this critical support in a time when government support for community safety net services like Face to Face is eroding and grant funding is decreasing.

We wish to also thank our 2017 Empowering Breakfast Sponsors. Last but not least, thank you to the young people and parents who inspired everyone in the room by sharing their stories and thoughts. You reminded us all why Face to Face is here!
