On Friday, May 7, 2021, The Program, It’s About Change partnered with Give Local York to participate in the 24-hour local giving challenge. Taking careful inventory of the resources needed to meet the needs of the clients we serve, The Program identified our Family Reunification and Housing Assistance programs as beneficiaries of Give Local York donations for 2021. We identified donation levels that would provide our clients with the most amount of needed support returning home.
Because every family is different, our Family Reunification program provides services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of the clients we serve. Our flexibility allows for individualized sessions for clients, their children and family members. We keep our families engaged and begin to see a new level of empowerment in our participants.
We believe that choosing where a person will live after incarceration can be a life-changing step. Considering the positive impact this decision could make on future generations, our Housing Assistance program exists so that no one has to navigate this crucial decision alone. Our Housing Assistance program helps men and women find housing that’s affordable, secure and sustainable.
The 24-hour fundraising marathon started off with a bang when we received our first charitable contribution shortly after midnight when the campaign began! Throughout the day, a total of 43 donors contributed a total of $2,700 to support The Program’s mission! All donations will go directly towards reuniting families and enabling individuals to lead successful lives despite prior missteps. Stay tuned for more updates about who the donations have helped!
