"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." – Coretta Scott King
In Thurston County with a Population of 299,496 we are looking for 100 people to help aid in eliminating the Youth Homelessness in our Community. Would you or some folks you know like to help in this effort but you’re unsure how to contribute your time or donations? I had the pleasure of meeting with the Founder and CEO of "Our Ark" and he is on a mission to break the cycles of Youth Homelessness in our community by expanding four divisions with 25 volunteers each within "Our Ark."
These areas of growth will be much needed volunteers to support Out Reach, Mentoring, Hosting, and Cooking. Are you brimming with wisdom and compassion and have a burning desire to share this knowledge with a youth who needs a mentor? Can you offer a commitment of 3-4hrs a week to mentor a member of society between the ages of 17-25yrs old? Would you like to walk throughout camps and spread the word of "Our Ark" to youths in need of support? Do you have space within your own home that you would like to host a youth in transition to establishing their own living quarters? Can you cook meals that can be donated weekly? If you have answered yes to any of these questions or have some questions of your own I encourage you to go to the "Our Ark" website and learn more.
On the site you can also access other ways to contribute such as the Amazon Wish List categories; Survival Supplies, Food Items, First Aid, & Hygiene
