Annual Fund Campaign

March 2016


Dear Friend:

A teen haunted by her memories of growing up on the streets, never knowing where she and her family will spend the night.  

A third grader who can’t read.  

A youth with the desire to live independently but without any job skills.  

These are just a few of the thousands of individuals we help at Hillsides – children, teens, and families who are struggling to find stability, purpose, and happiness.  

We provide children in foster care with a safe, stable environment where they learn how to trust again, give youth formerly in foster care housing and life skills to become successful adults, offer families in crisis with essential counseling and resources, and turn students with special needs into classroom achievers.

But we can’t do it alone. We need you as a partner to help to reconstruct lives.  We need your support to give those we serve the building blocks to healing and self-determination.  

The blueprint for success is there. Won’t you help us lay the foundation for long-lasting happiness and change?  

With your help, we can help children heal from trauma, families recover from crises and hopelessness, youth facing unemployment and homelessness find jobs, and students labeled as “failures” discover their love of learning and go on to college and careers.  

Your contributions  can support job training, reading programs, parenting classes, and healing art and music programs, to name just a few of the ways you can have a direct impact.

Help us today with your gift of $50, $100, $250, or $500 to restore hope and build brighter futures.
