Not all families can afford a computer or access to the internet. Not all families have homes. True statements at any time but 2020 has made these two statements relevant to even more families.
The Treasure Valley YMCA offers a School Day Plus program giving school-age children a safe place to go with access to computers and the internet, adults to aid the students in their studies, and everything else they need to excel. To ensure more students can benefit from this program, GBRF just awarded the YMCA $20,000.
Every Family. Every Person. A Home. CATCH usually has a waiting list of 150 families needing housing. This year the waiting list is 250 families. Most are single mothers with children. GBRF awarded CATCH $10,000 to help end homelessness for these struggling families.
These are just two of the worthy programs that GBRF has helped in 2020. Many more need funding.
