Sustaining Support for Kids
“I believe in our Clubs. We DO provide a positive safe place for kids & teens where they receive a good meal, help with homework and learn important skills to make proper choices.”
Diann Gilbertson, Executive Director
We need your help!
Throughout the year we struggle to maintain the necessary stable funding to meet our monthly program needs. With your regular contribution to the “Sustaining Support for Kids” Campaign you help provide stability for our programs continued success. You determine the dollar amount (a monthly donation helps the kids the most).
Each year we serve over 5,000 youth in Josephine and Jackson Counties. We offer core programming in five important areas including The Arts, Career & Education Development, Sports Fitness & Recreation, Health & Life Skills and Character & Leadership Development. We are not a drop-in center, but rather a youth development organization where kids are safe and can learn important skills that help them make good choices as they grow into adulthood.
We understand the importance of proper nutrition and teach this to our members through our Healthy Habits Program. We also partner with the USDA (USDA and this institution are equal opportunity providers and employers) to provide free nutritious meals and snacks on a daily basis.
