The time is now for our end-of-year fundraiser! We always aim to grow our services in concert with our support so that we remain stable for our clients. We measure this by our income and expenses balancing for the previous 12 months. This year, our Covid-19 pandemic responses have caused our costs to go up considerably but we've been lucky to have gotten grants to offset those. We have not stopped serving a single day. It's working and our clients continue to reorient their lives. Our breakeven goal is shown below with progress, and it includes an additional 25,000 needed to match the Glimmer of Hope growth grant we received this year for work expanding our outreach this year and next.

Help Guide and Equip Homeless Young Adults

When you donate to SYMin

  • We are relatively small but efficient and highly effective.

  • Homeless youth find us for the resources.

  • We engage them in trust-based guidance.

  • Street youth set and achieve goals that re-establish their life direction.

They come to us for food, clothing, toiletries and self-care items but they stay to be heard, known and for guidance counseling. 80% engage deeply. Those who do are twice as likely to set and achieve life-changing goals than those who don't. We're always adapting and trying new things, but our methods are tested and effective since 2008. They are awesome individuals and need help to recover from extreme poverty they have already experienced at this young age.

Yes, I want to help guide and equip homeless young adults!

Our most valuable product is guidance counseling. Most of your gift goes to pay for this life-changing service. Of course, we also offer food, clothing, and more. For more information about us and how your gifts are used by our small and thrifty organization, go to our regular Donate page. You can give in any way you prefer (Paypal, Credit Card, Check, Facebook, Electronic Check). Giving options are outlined in the menu under "Donate."
