A huge boost during National Foster Care Month

Thank You!
Thank You!

We've had some great news recently about this ongoing project, here are some highlights:

* In our biggest recruiting month ever, over 100 clinicians volunteered to begin a pro-Bono case in March. Any licensed therapist may click here and apply to join us - please share this with colleagues who may be interested in joining our national network.

*
We are now in the final round of competition for the Schwab Global Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Winning this 2012 global competition would give us a seat at the World Economic Forum. We are up against stiff international competition and it’s very exciting that we made the first cut!


*
The second edition of Forces For Good: The Six Practices of High Impact Nonprofits was released on May 7th and A Home Within is honored to be one of only thirteen organizations included in a new chapter focused on smaller, high-impact non-profits.

*
Groupon Grassroots ran a promotion for us in the Washington, DC area that attracted 252 new contributions, all matched by The Peery Foundation, which will support 1 year of therapy for 10 foster youth in the area.

So many people and groups have supported our work and recent expansion, from individual donors to grant-making foundations, and volunteer clinicians to media partners. From the whole staff here at A Home Within, thank you for making this work possible.
