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.
