Summer Fund Fact

In 2017, the Summer Fund allocated $980,000 to support over 20,000 disadvantaged and at-risk youth, youth in homeless shelters, and those facing housing insecurities to take part in summer camping, access to cultural and arts activities, and job opportunities for the summer.

Our Impact

Shelter life is difficult for children, especially during the summer when school is out. At camp, this 9-year-old boy played tennis, swam, and made friends with other children his own age. We are grateful we could offer him a fun and stimulating opportunity to spend time outside of the shelter this summer.
