As the Holiday season approaches and the year winds down, we still find ourselves busier than expected, working with some remarkable young people in Chicago. I hope that you will join us by making a generous donation to CAT.
Chicago youth face overwhelming everyday challenges
- we worked with gang-involved youth who watch their backs every day
- we worked with youth exiting the Child Welfare System and entering adulthood alone
- we worked with homeless youth
- we worked with youth questioning and affirming their sexual orientation or gender identity, trying to figure where and with whom they can be themselves
Here’s what some of our youth had to say this summer:
“I have learned to be a better person at home in the streets and everywhere else I go. I recommend this program to anyone who is struggling”
“My goal was to face my fears and have a great time doing it. I realy do feel like my goals were acheived because in the end I was climbing like a pro and kayaking like one too even though I was initially not sure I would be able to do either.”
You make it possible
We believe that no individual or agency should be unable to participate because of financial reasons, so we work with each referring agency to negotiate a realistic price for them. Over 2/3 of our budget is raised through the generous contributions of individuals like you.
