Going back to school can be a challenging time for youth who are experiencing homelessness! Many YOTO youth struggle with school because they lack resources like food, hygiene products, and school supplies.
But, you can help! By making a gift to our Back to School Challenge, you can make a direct, positive impact on the lives of youth in Pima County!
This year, we are raising funds and collecting basic needs items so that the estimated 1,500 youth YOTO enrolls this year have the chance to start the school year off right! What’s more, we’re thrilled to announce that the Lester & Roberta Smith Foundation has generously committed to matching all financial gifts up to $20,000. This means your donation can go twice as far!
Help YOTO youth graduate from high school by making your gift to the Back to School Challenge today!
YOTO Graduate Luna Aguirre recently shared her story in our Back to School Challenge letter.
P.S.: Don’t forget that your gift to YOTO qualifies for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit! Learn more here!
