It Takes a Village

At our Wednesday art program


We believe that this work is not ours alone.  Each month we put together these newsletters so that you can share in the joys and struggles of this work.  Many of you support the work we do through your prayers and partnerships, advocating for us in countless unseen ways, volunteering your time in our programs or in preparing meals for our youth or equipping us with the financial support and tools we need to be in the trenches of their lives every day.  So when we received encouragement from an outside source, we thought it only appropriate to share it with you. The following correspondence was from one of the schools we partner with.  In part, it belongs to you.  Thanks for believing and investing in us. After all “it takes a village” to live out these dreams:

“Even though I don’t say it all the time, I want you to know how much I appreciate you and Youth Unlimited in terms of the work you do every day to support and guide our students - not just on the work you do directly with our students, but the selfless work that you do to assist others in helping out effectively at [our school.  This community] has a lot of challenges and it epitomizes the saying “it takes a village to raise a child.”   I know that with your support and the support from others that you are “mentoring” to help us more authentically, we will continue to see the
positive impact on our kids. Thank you thank you thank you!”
