Patricia Fox Scholarship Fund
The Patricia Fox Scholarship Fund honors the first CEO and co-founder of The Center for Youth and Family Solutions. It is designed to assist any current or previous young adults served by The Center for Youth and Family Solutions by helping to pay for fees associated with advancing their career and tied to pursuing a degree, vocational or technical training. By donating to this fund, you too are helping someone achieve solutions!
Just Like Me
Our Just Like Me activity fund gives kids who have experienced significant trauma a sense of normalcy by enjoying things like riding a bike, playing little league or going to the water park with friends. These experiences can be costly, and not all families can afford them. That is why our Just Like Me fund is so important, as it allows kids in our care a chance to quite simply, be kids!
