Other Special Giving Opportunities

In Loving Memory of Lloyd Albert Cutrer
Lloyd Albert Cutrer was gentle and kind beyond compare. This memorial will go to The Center for Youth and Family Solution’s Adoption program.

Our “Just Like Me” activity fund, which we introduced at our 4th annual Blues for a Cause benefit concert, has been actively putting smiles on several kids throughout our service area.The idea behind this fund is to help give kids who have been abused and
neglected a sense of normalcy by enjoying things like riding a bike or playing little league or going to a water park.  These experiences can be costly, and not all of our families can afford them.   The great news is, because of the overwhelming response in donations we received at the concert, we have been able to help many of the youth in our care have something special to look forward to this summer! Some of our favorite things we have been able to purchase because of your generosity:
 Summer camp for 10-year-old Jacob so he can make new friends in the
community he is relocated to this summer
 A first time experience to Wrigley field for avid Cubs fan Camden and his
foster family
 Swim passes for Janae so she can spend time with friends this summer
 Bicycles for 5-year-old twins so they can enjoy playing outside together
 Six flags passes for our boys in our Guardian Angel residential treatment
program
Do you want to become a part of our Just Like Me campaign and bring a great
summer memory to one of our kids?
