Hope For The Holidays


The holidays bring us so much joy, but for many, a little extra love is needed. With your small donation, you will be bringing a huge smile to a resident of a foster home, group home or youth at risk of entering the system. Many of these youngsters are on a path to self reliance, but they can all benefit from an extra helping of love during the holiday season. We hope adding these little smiles will help warm up many hearts, including yours!

Your donation to Hope For Youth goes a long way. Rest assured that 100% of your donation directly benefits kids in foster care on Long Island. Many of the children and adolescents at Hope For Youth cannot spend the holiday with their natural families. This Holiday Season, give a gift that makes a difference! This is what we were able to do last year with the help of donors & volunteers like you!
