And the selected 3rd Quarter 2019 nonprofit is…
This quarter we will be collectively donating to Second Story. They envision a community in which all young people are safe, live in a nurturing environment and have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Second Story offers long term and short term safe havens for teenagers experiencing a crisis such as abuse or mental health, young adults who are homeless and trying to complete high school, and young mothers that are fleeing situations of domestic violence. In addition, Second Story provides preventative after school programs for youth in neighborhoods experiencing gang violence and the threat of human trafficking. Their programs step in at a critical juncture of a young person’s life, lifting them back up when they fall, and staying the course, ensuring that they have opportunities for learning, growth, and success.
Our next meeting will be held on November 7, 2019 in The Mosaic Community Space, located at 2985 District Ave., Suite 100 in Merrifield.
6:30-7:30 Social Hour
