Wind Youth Services - Sacramento
Our speaker today was Lisa Campodonico, Development Director for Wind Youth Services. She shared with us some of the services that they offer the homeless youth in Sacramento. There were some pretty scary statistics given but she also let us know about their many successes.
The club members made up comfort kits to be given to young girls who end up in their program. They are filled with toiletries, a pair of gloves, panties and other items to make their stay with Wind a little easier.
