Time to Celebrate!
In the past year, LIFE Skills Foundation has made dramatic strides in reducing young adult homelessness and improving the overall landscape of resources available for transition age youth in Durham. LIFE Skills houses young adults facing homelessness and offers a comprehensive, personalized menu of services tailored to the complex needs of Durham's most vulnerable youth. Our unique approach ensures that youth have the tools, supports and resources they need to become successful adults.
Last August, we completed renovations on our first independent living apartment building. We converted one unit into an office and immediately began housing six young adults in the other units. The second apartment building was opened in early spring. We can now house 17 youth in a safe and supportive environment as they gain the skills and confidence to transition to independence.
Join us on November 10th to learn more about our progress, meet some of the young people served by our programs and hear more about our exciting plans for the future. Without our donors and friends, none of this important work would be possible. Thank you!
