PLEASE HELP US RIGHT NOW TO CONTINUE TO HELP AND INFORM AND ADVOCATE FOR OUR CHILDREN
AND YOUTH AND CONTINUE OUR 25 YEARS OF VISION, PASSION AND SACRIFICE TO HELP
CHILDREN AND YOUTH!
FOUNDATION FOR YOUTH and its vital programs for children, youth, parents and
youth workers, including this web site, our local Teen City and City
Spirit sites and Teen-Anon (the only national 12-step fellowship for and
actual groups for recovering teens), our One Heart for Kids programs, our
award-winning and encouraging Reaching Up! Youth Radio weekly music and
interview program for teens and twenties, our national radio public
service announcements educating people about the needs of children and youth
and many collaborations we're building to all grow this year to help serve the
enormous amount of unmet needs of American youth and to grow our national web
portals--African-American Teens, Latino Teens, Muslim Teens and Youth
Now, in 2015, we are also publishing books for teens including a Teen-Anon Awesome
Teens Recovery Book, a Teen-Anon Group Leaders Manual, a book celebrating Teen
Heroes and an
interview book, People Who Matter and How You Can Matter Too!
And we're still working to start a very different kind of 24/7 satellite radio
network, CELEBRATE RADIO, to unite people, foster collaborative projects for
people to help each other and passionately solve society's unmet needs while
entertaining them with a 2000 song Positively Music mix.
To-do all that, we need YOU, no matter how small or large to help
us by making your donation! After 25 years, we just can't count on grants
anymore, so we need to count on you for all the millions of youth, families
and youth workers (secular and faith-based) we reach and help and tens of
thousands more we need to help in your community and all throughout the U.S.
We've been operating on and doing all we do, which keeps increasing with well
under a total budget of $22,000 a year, which isn't nearly enough to do all
the good work we do and lives we help change each year! But that’s not even
a third of what we need to truly help youth in all the areas we are working
We need to do so much more so that we can help YOU, your kids, your teens,
college youth, youth counselors and those who do youth ministry, teachers and
government officials who constantly call, write or email us for urgent, life-saving
help, advice and resources / referrals.
All we have to is raise $25,000 more each year to continue all the projects we
do, to save or change more young lives and to be sufficient to the miracles
that need be helped along. YOU, your friends, schoolmates, family members,
co-workers and even the company you work for can help us get there… at just
$5, $10, $15, $20, $50, $100, $250 at a time...ANY help will start to make a
Even sending us just $1, $2, $5 or $10 a week in an envelope will help save the
lives of tens of thousands of children and teens, keep our web sites up that
help 5 million more a year AND keep thousands of adolescents in our
life-saving TEEN-ANON groups and help start more groups for teens in more
cities while publicizing the needs of our children on a national radio public
service announcement campaign, day in and day out, as we birth new
and more beneficial local coalitions between non-profit youth groups and
faith-based organizations, schools and counties..
THIS web site alone (and we have 22 more helping kids, parents, families) is
accessed by 2.4 million people a year looking for help, resources and referrals. Our new 30-minute weekly Reaching Up! Radio show is now reaching
and helping young people across the U.S. and in 31 European countries!
We have thousands of youth in our recovery groups to stay off alcohol and other
drugs and learn to be productive adults and we need (and parents and teens
need) to get our (www.teen-anon.com) Teen-Anon program and our new teens
recovery books in every county, every high school, every drug program and
every juvenile hall and drug court program in the country, as it already is in
places like Anaheim California, Eau Claire Wisconsin, Chicago, Miles City
Montana, Enterprise and Ft.. Lauderdale FL, Ft.Worth Texas New Haven Ct and
other towns and cities and just beginning in Ohio in our first Juvenile Court
recovery program! A similar program, Young and Recovering, is now being
birthed by us for college students with alcohol and other drug problems (they
have increased dramatically on campuses)
WE NEED YOUR HELP, RIGHT NOW!
Our National Childrens Coalition vitally helps advocate the cause of helping
American children and has since 1995. Our newly-launched (www.oneheartforkids.com)
ONE HEART FOR KIDS national campaign, introduced at a One Heart for Kids
benefit concert in Oakland by our friend and long-time supporter Noel Paul
Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary 10 years ago, seeks to educate the public
still further about children's needs and the American tragedy of children,
while starting chapters in each city to gather volunteers and raise money to
fund all the grassroots youth organizations like ours around the country, that
are daily sacrificing to help our kids, while funders have ignored them and us
Our new model Interfaith Family Resource Center project, getting churches and
synagogues and secular youth organizations all working together in a community
or whole county, with a hotline and drop-in centers, is something that can be
replicated anywhere in the country and needs to be.
We long to restart our Street Kids program, which, for 6 years, was the most
(successful on-the-street counseling and help program for runaways in several
cities. Major organizations you may have heard of that are supposedly helping
'teens' no longer help ANYONE under 18!
