Will donate services to YMCA Safeplace Services
Louisville, KY: When youth, teens and young adults in crisis need somewhere to stay, someone to trust or someone to listen, YMCA Safe Place Services of Louisville is there to help — every day, around the clock and have been since 1974.
With a focus on positive youth development, their cause is to strengthen families by breaking cycles of violence, abuse and turmoil and giving children and families the resources they need for a better future. Here’s what the present looks like for many children and youth in KY and Louisville specifically:
* 31.8% of children and youth living in poverty
* 7,000 children in state’s care
* Incarcerated adults 13% higher than national average
* 110,000 Kentucky youth ages 16 – 24 are not in school and are unemployed
* 12,000 youth were homeless or in unstable housing; 2012-2013 school year
* 18-24 year-olds fastest growing homeless population
“Brad Gaines was already involved voluntarily with our program and I came to him asking how Reset could help us reach our goals as an organization. The first phase will be a 30 Day Reset with myself and key executives of the organization. I’m looking forward to their outside perspective about how we can continue fulfilling our mission” says executive director Matt Reed
“I had an experience that led me to become involved with YMCA Safeplace. I figure I can either complain about the Louisville youth or I can help.” says managing partner Brad Gaines.
