At 12 Midnight, the East Palo Alto Teen Home started participating in the 2nd Annual Silicon Valley Gives event! In this historic event, people are coming together to make financial contributions in a 24-hour online fundraising effort to show their support to non-profit organizations that are making a positive difference in the lives of others here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded and established by Sheila George, the Executive Director, the East Palo Alto Teen Home offers support services, education, and life skills training to teen residents who come from Child Protective Services and Juvenile Detention Centers from various California counties.
Since April 1992, the East Palo Alto Teen Home has been organized to help teenage women and teen mothers with children, who are group home residents, to become fully functioning members of society by providing access to social, educational, and employment opportunities that exist within and outside of the community of East Palo Alto. For the Silicon Valley Gives 2015 fundraising campaign, the East Palo Alto Teen Home is seeking donations to (1) expand its current youth program services, (2) establish special project components, and (3) raise funds to finance a two-week Cultural Enrichment Program to take a group of teens and chaperones to Ghana, Africa in Summer 2016.
