Support Youth Going Back to Their Community

We are a non-profit organization and depend on your generous donations to help our youth succeed both while at Echo Glen and once they transition back to their communities.

Many youth do not have the support of a family or their families struggle with food insecurity, housing insecurity, or job insecurity when they return to their homes and schools. This adds to their anxiety & low self esteem. Please consider helping a youth leaving Echo Glen with a few items that may help them with their educational or job training plans.

Ways to help:

More children to come soon!

Daniel:

My name is Daniel, I’m 16 years old and I am excited to go back to my home and start high school like a regular kid. Some of the things I’m stressed out about are not having enough food at home and not having clothes for school. I don’t want to use my old gang color clothes anymore and want to graduate from high school so that I can go to college and study business. I’m looking for jobs right now, which is hard because of COVID, but I may be able to help my mom by working in the fields this summer before I start school. It’s hard work but it keeps me busy and out of trouble. Thank you for your help.

Sally:

My name is Sally and I was one of two girls that graduated high school from Echo Glen in 2019. I am also only one of those two that is transitioning into the community at this time. I have been accepted to Perry Technical Institute in Yakima taking a Manufacturing year long course. Needless to say I am doing big things, but I need some help. I hope to be able to complete this course and practice this trade once I transition out of my group home.
