Purpose of the Walk
Just-A-Start training and housing programs require funding from multiple sources to retain the comprehensive scope and quality of services needed to achieve program goals.
The purpose of the "Youth on the Move" Walk is to develop one additional means of raising public awareness and private support funds for affordable housing, training, education, counseling, and the job-readiness needs of youth and families in urban communities.
Use of Funds Contributed
Contributions raised by Walkers will be used to help fund JAS education, counseling, and training programs, and stabilization and development of affordable housing. The contributions of Sponsors of the Walk will be used for these purposes toward the expense of implementing this event. Contributions are tax-deductible.
