Helping Kids Get Off The Street For Good

Throughout 2009 we have been celebrating our 25th Anniversary at Larkin Street Youth Services. That’s 25 years of helping kids get off the streets for good. Please help us bring this celebration to a rousing close. Join our campaign to raise $25 from 250 (or more) generous supporters.

Donate $25, then send the message on to 25 of your friends, and ask them to send it to 25 of their friends, and on, and on, and on… Your support makes a difference. It could mean anything from a night off the street in a warm bed to a youth passing their GED and getting into college. Help us give the youth at Larkin Street the opportunity they deserve to reach their full potential as adults.

Now more than ever, we need the help of the community to raise awareness in, interest of and support for Larkin Street Youth Services. The awareness and funds raised by the community will help support thousands of youth as they exit street life. Your support could mean anything from a night off the street in a warm bed to a youth passing their GED and getting into college. Help us give them the opportunity they deserve to reach their full potential as adults.
