ATC provides street outreach, counseling, and referrals to homeless youth who are disconnected from services and supportive relationships in San Francisco. ATC has completed a $4 million capital and growth campaign in order to build out their new, long-term office and expand programmatic capacity. Founding Executive Director, Rob Gitin has stepped down from his ED role, and ATC is focused on maintaining the high-quality of client work while setting the stage for the organization’s next chapter.
Beyond Emancipation
$35,000 B:E provides housing, education and workforce development programs that support youth to build skills, knowledge, experience & relationships needed to live healthy, productive and connected lives in Alameda County. Funding will help B:E better track program performance, grow their individual donor base, and build capacity to attract and retain strong staff with appropriate skills.
Court Appointed Special Advocates Program, Inc. $75,000 Funds will be used to provide transitional age foster youth with a supportive adult who will work with the youth to ensure that their housing and educational needs are met, and that they develop the independent living skills to become self-sufficient adults. CASA launched a pilot program this year to reduce the unintended teen pregnancy rate in Contra Costa County.
DeMolay Foundation $10,000 Board discretionary grant in honor of former Five Bridges Foundation board member Warren Blomseth.
Huckleberry Youth Programs, Inc. $75,000 Funding will be used for TAY counseling and case management services, which include individual, group, and family counseling, family strengthening and reunification, mental health and substance abuse counseling, support for sexually exploited clients, and wraparound aids for employment, housing, and juvenile justice.
New Door Ventures $50,000 Funding will help New Door grow its youth employment program in the East Bay, where there are more than 35,000 disconnected youth and fewer programs for the highest-risk youth than in San Francisco. New Door has launched three expansion sites in the East Bay, two in Oakland and one in Hayward. Two other program sites are partnerships with foster youth providers (First Place for Youth, Beyond Emancipation, Side by Side,) who provide housing, mental health services and case management while New Door provides new or additional employment opportunities.
Success Center of San Francisco $75,000 Funding will help youth gain job and life skills, and successfully end justice system involvement. Three strategic priorities identified for the coming year are: expanding youth workforce services into northern San Mateo county; increasing organizational development to strengthen the capacity of middle management and enhance cohesiveness across programs; and continuing to diversify the funding of the agency through creating an earned income funding stream.
Sunny Hills Services/BAYC $40,000 The RAFA program provides foster youth and youth on probation with safe housing and a structured independent living program where they can practice self-directed living skills in Alameda County. Funding will help fill the gap between the skyrocketing cost of providing safe housing to vulnerable transition-age youth and fully funding essential services that support their journeys from childhoods of trauma, neglect and exploitation to adulthoods of promise and potential. Partnerships with Beyond Emancipation and New Door Ventures will aid with employment, life skills, and educational training.
Youth Homes, Inc. $75,000 Youth Homes has partnered with Trauma Transformed, a program of the East Bay Agency for Children. Through this partnership, they seek to gain knowledge, training, and skills necessary to become a trauma-informed system—one that builds awareness and knowledge of trauma in order to shape policies and practices aimed at reducing the traumatization of foster youth and families in Contra Costa County.
