Our UUFBC Social Justice Team is supporting the SOAR program. The SOAR Program serves an average of 200 homeless youth in our community on an annual basis. It is a mobile unit of street outreach workers who engage homeless youth by providing basic essentials such as food, water and hygiene products, while building a trusting relationship and helping them to make the transition into self-sufficient living, free from the dangers of homelessness and street life.
The Social Justice bulletin board has a list of recommended food and toiletry items to fill our donation box from week to week. To date, we have filled the box four times and made donations valued at $130.00. Thanks to all who remember to pick up a few items for these homeless youth as you do your family grocery shopping.
