Each year, up to 2.8 million youth experience homelessness—a group roughly equivalent to 1% of the U.S. population. The causes of homelessness are numerous and range from being orphaned, fleeing chronic abuse or simply escaping economic problems. Some youth are called “throw-aways” because their parents and guardians force them out of the home because of sexual orientation or beliefs.
There are lots of ways to give to our organization. Here are a few ideas:
How to Help us in your Community
Organize a fundraiser in your community. Please contact Taz to organize a screening of our Emmy-nominated film, a speaking engagement by one of the Reciprocity Foundation’s founders or an event to educate people about homelessness.
We are always seeking volunteer career professionals in the areas of media, design, fashion, marketing, music and entrepreneurship. Please contact Adam if you would like to volunteer with us.
