We would like to give a heartfelt thank you to Koch Air, J.E Shekell, Oxbow Electrical, The Home Depot, Benny’s Flooring, and Paint & Carpet Depot for their overwhelming generosity. Koch Air, a subsidiary of the Koch Foundation, donated all new heating, air, plumbing, bathrooms, fixtures, and a new kitchen. This was made possible through the hard work, dedication, generosity, and spirit of giving that is J.E. Shekell. Without them, none of this would have been possible. We would also like to thank Oxbow Electrical who stepped in and stepped up to donate all new electrical throughout the home. Thanks as well go to Benny’s Flooring and Paint and Carpet Depot, who teamed up to donate all new flooring throughout the home. And, on Saturday, The Home Depot donated all the drywall and materials that will be needed to drywall the home. From the entire Board of Directors, Staff, and current Program Youth, we thank each and every one of you for helping us make this house a home for homeless youth in the Tri-State. We are humbled and honored to partner with all of you and look forward to the future, now made possible, by you.

Our Sponsors and Donors
We are always in need of volunteers to staff our fundraisers, events, youth mentor opportunities and opportunities to work directly with youth in our home.
Our programs include providing youth with essential services (food, transportation, etc.), life skills, housing, and school backpack programs.
Every dollar donated changes the outcomes of Homeless and Foster Care youth in Evansville, IN, and the surrounding counties.
The facts on homeless foster care youth
- Children and youth in Foster Care are referred to as the “Throw Away Society,” because of the perception that if they are unwanted human beings, then their life has no value.
- Only 3% of that 30,000 (900) will finish high school, find a job, obtain housing and not repeat the cycle of foster care with their own children.
- 7%, of that same number (2,100) will commit suicide, or attempt it, within the first six months of transition, because they have no one and nowhere to go.
- Over half will become the victims of a violent crime before their 21st birthday.
- The rest will be incarcerated, murdered or become the victims of human/sex trafficking.
