Donna's Story: Help purchase a lifesaving service animal for a youth in need.

This need is about a high-risk youth in our care and her community champion, Donna, who is fundraising to purchase a service animal for her. A service animal will give this young person the best chance of success down the road, and Closer to Home wants to make sure that happens. We can only do this with your help to spread the word. 
Our goal is to raise $15,000 in the month of August so that this dog can be purchased as soon as possible from the company that will train the dog specifically for this youth. Donna has already raised the first half of the funds needed and today you can help us meet the goal.

Closer to Home

Building Resilient Families and Communities

We know that strong, stable homes and relationships are critical to people’s success and wellbeing. That’s why preserving and reunifying families is at the heart of everything we do.

It’s also why we strive to offer our programs and services in a home or a home-like environment. After all, home is where people feel a sense of connection, where lasting habits are best formed, and where real change often begins. Whether biological or chosen, it’s the relationships—the deep bonds—that make people feel at home. These bonds are critical to helping young people (and adults) feel supported on their journey of growth. We build resilient families and communities by giving children, youth, parents and caregivers the tools, training and support needed to learn, heal and grow stronger together.
