Operating a residential facility for youth means addressing all needs – food, shelter, supervision, and clothing. In emergency shelter situations, many youth come to the Home with only the clothes they are wearing. Supplies of clothes are depleted quickly and at significant expense. It is estimated to cost $280/year for boys and $420/year for girls to provide a sufficient wardrobe of undergarments.
