Cedarglen Living is proud to have a tradition of giving back to the community. This year, as one of our initiatives, the Living team undertook repainting and repairing (where required) 15 units at Aspen Family & Community Networks – Youth Transition to Adulthood apartments. This program provides housing and support to youth ages 17-24 who are transitioning from foster care or difficult family circumstances to adulthood and independent living.
These youth have faced many challenges and often find themselves with very few people they can count on. In a system that has its hands full working with children and families, these young adults are often the “forgotten ones”. To learn more about the program, we encourage you to visit http://www.aspenfamily.org/what-we-do/youth/youth-transitions-to-adulthood/ .
As anyone can imagine, the Christmas season can be an especially sensitive, emotional, and lonely time for many of these young adults. In order to help make their Christmas memorable, Cedarglen Living will be providing everyone in this program with gifts and a Christmas dinner. Our hope is that this small gesture makes their holiday brighter.
We challenge everyone to try and make a difference this Christmas season for those in need. Any kind deed can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
All the best over the holidays.
Your Friends at Cedarglen Living!
