Your donation will make an impact!

Excessive screen time and social media addictionWhen we began our strategic planning process three years ago to identify the community's current needs, we never imagined the severe crisis we would find. Many of you have shared stories about the youth you know, the heart-wrenching pain they are facing, and how their suffering is affecting both their families and the community. While there are many factors contributing to the rise in anxiety, stress, panic, depression and suicide in our youth, we are focusing on the biggest issue identified by our community - excessive screen time and social media addiction.

We are committed to compassionately supporting local youth and families through new services to increase empathy and resilience, just as we have through our legacy programs - Operation Teddy Bear, Food for Kids, and the Court Referral Community Service Program.

Please join us "at the heart of helping," so we can continue to support local youth and families together.
