Happy holidays, everyone! We hosted our annual Winter Festival for young people experiencing homelessness once again with food, presents, music and more thanks to donations and volunteers from our incredible community.

Beginning with breakfast, we offered special activities throughout the day for young people like arts and crafts, face painting, games and an awesome live band. For lunch, our amazing chef served gumbo three ways, including a vegetarian version, as well as fresh salads followed by cake and ice cream for desert. After lunch we handed out presents from our friends at CityPak filled with gift cards, toiletry kits, new socks and underwear, and winter coats.

We’re so grateful to all of our supporters, donors, volunteers and staff for making this special day possible. You can help, too! Make a donation now to the work to end youth homelessness.
