Step Up: Giving Tree for Homeless Youth
Time & Place
About The Event
Every day, youth experiencing homelessness must focus on food, shelter, and safety. Yet during the holidays, their wishes are no different than what so many of us look forward to: a chance to gather with friends and loved ones, share a meal, and enjoy the season. With your help, we hope to spread joy and make the holidays feel special for youth experiencing homelessness.
Join YP Impact from December 4-22, as we fulfill wishes for homeless youth at YouthCare.
To participate simply visit YouthCare's Holiday Wish List on Amazon and purchase an item or items from the list. Then take a picture of the item you purchased (not the receipt) and share on social media tagging YP Impact and YouthCare and using the hashtags #wishlist and #homelessyouth. Encourage others to participate and help spread some kindness around this holiday season.

YouthCare works to end youth homelessness and to ensure that young people are valued for who they are and empowered to achieve their potential.
Each young person arrives at YouthCare with a unique story and set of circumstances. For some youth, quick support—a hot meal, a chat with staff, a visit to the clinic—is all that’s needed to move forward. For others, the path to stability may look different. Through a combination of individualized services tailored to young people’s needs and a trusting relationship with a caring adult, YouthCare ensures that young people experiencing homelessness achieve long-term stability.
