ASCLS once again gave back to the annual meeting host city with ASCLS Provides HOPE – Helping Other People Event. This year’s event, hosted by the ASCLS Promotion of the Profession Committee, supported the organization SAY San Diego. This organization advances the vision of opportunity, equity and well-being for all San Diegans. They have partnered with youth, adults, families and communities since 1971 to reach their full potential. They now touch the lives of more than 70,000 San Diegans every year by focusing on three key areas:
- Child and youth development, including before and after school programs for grade K-8, and preschools, across more than 40 sites.
- Youth, adult and family wellness, including child abuse prevention, foster care and kinship parenting support, juvenile delinquency prevention and youth development, family strengthening and self-sufficiency, as well as mental health counseling, case management and related services for youth and adults.
- Community engagement, including community organizing, coalition building and collective impact that increases resident and youth involvement in improving neighborhood safety and well-being, as well as operating multi-service family resource centers to provide vital support to military, refugee and economically insecure families.
Members of the PPC and the ASCLS travel grant receipents collected 5 boxes of school suppies and $735 in donations which were donated to SAY San Diego. Thank you fo helping ASCLS provide HOPE to others!
