Our students survived homeschooling!

              100s of requests were coming in every day.
                      One by one, we continued to help.
It is easy to get overwhelmed at a time like this. We are trying to keep our jobs, keep ourselves safe, and protect our family and friends, all while having to wonder day by day how much longer this will be and how much worse it may get. 
We are hearing this from people from every corner; from every age, race, religion and economic status. But the requests from young people who have aged out of foster care have hit us the hardest. Many are alone, without family support. Many lost their housing and access to food due to college closures. Many are struggling to continue their education; their one hope for a better future. But we did not let it overwhelm us. We are doing the work as we always do...one story, one human, one wish at a time.
Out COVID_19 Response Requests grew rapidly and we were so grateful. It is allowed our team to respond more quickly to the needs for laptops, food, gas and more. But we know the needs would continue to flood in so we know we must continue to spread the word.
So far we have responded to nearly 50 requests in laptops for support and over 320 requests for food. But we have moe requests for food, gas and other essentials coming in daily. Please, don't keep this information to yourself.  Share it ! You never know who might need it or who can help.
