A Year In Review: The Project Legacy 2018 Program Update
As the year comes to a close, we are reflecting on a year of incredible growth and transformation as an organization. Because of generous supporters and community members, we continue to make a tangible impact in the lives of youth in our community allowing these young people to dream of a new future and access the tools, support and resources necessary to make their dreams a reality.
Our 2018 program report is now available for download, which includes outcomes and key data on the 86 young people we served this year. While our youth come from diverse backgrounds, all have a shared vision for their lives — a desire to overcome past trauma, a commitment to changing past behaviors, and a dedication to building a legacy for their future.
When you support Project Legacy, you support youth who have incarcerated parents, youth who have been incarcerated, youth who are survivors of the commercial sex industry and others who have been trafficked. Many of our youth have witnessed acts of war, domestic violence, abuse and addiction. Today, through the holistic support of Project Legacy, these young people have become first generation high school graduates and college students, recovering from trauma and learning to move forward with resiliency.
When you support Project Legacy, you support a program that addresses diversity of experience through integrated, wraparound care that is otherwise siloed among different organizations and service providers.
As you read our Year In Review progress report, we thank you all for an incredible 2018 and look forward with hope and excitement for the year to come. Your encouragement, advocacy, volunteerism and financial contributions have made these accomplishments possible, making a difference not only in the lives of those in our program today —but in the lives of generations yet to come.
Karen Edmonds, Executive Director, and the Project Legacy Board of Directors
