UMW Christmas Brunch
The speaker at our December 14, 2019 Christmas was Don Graves, the Program Coordinator for the Contra Costa Independent Living Skills Program (ILSP). This is a program that provides services to youth still in foster care between the ages of 16 through 21. The primary focus of the ILSP program is to identify all eligible youth and provide emancipation services and resources to all youth with the goal of preparing them for responsible adulthood and independence.
Our local UMW provided 13 Thanksgiving baskets for foster youth this year and we are looking for ways to provide support for this great program in 2020.
More information will be coming about our goals after the first of the year.
