Attire For Hire!

Its finally feeling a bit more like summer and the LegUp is holding a donation drive! A part of our Life Skills training, taught by, Dr. Mike Haro, is that after attending a week long intensive, our clients have earned 5 vouchers to shop at the LegUp Store! There, they can use their vouchers to shop for interview ready outfits, books, and other necessities. This is where you come in! Now through August 14th, we need you to donate gently used professional items, new toiletries and undergarments, and accessories.

If you’re ready to get involved with the LegUp, we will need volunteers to receive and sort donations!

Its only through your support that we will achieve our mission to prevent and end homelessness through advocacy, support, and friendship.

Building the new…

Happiness is in small victories! It is hard to change familiar habits, and it feels impossible to turn around when you are far down a given path. But the surest way to have real victory, be it great or small, is to choose something different. To choose progress, growth, and security is not comfortable. It requires dedication. It requires you to surround yourself with those who will advocate for you to succeed, support your goals, and befriend you when it is needed. The LegUp Program champions this belief every day. It is more than our goal to end homelessness for those entrenched in it and at risk for it, it is our mission and our joy!

This week our clients began a journey, and took a step forward into their goals, building change in their lives. They came and attended classes, and this week attained a measure of freedom. We believe in them, and are already so proud of them! Week two, here we come!

“The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates
