Changing the lives of our youth by providing preventative services, counseling and shelter that strengthens families and builds stronger communities.
Just Imagine-Adopt a Room
Just imagine, for a moment, making a young person feel really special with a room that dreams are built upon. That’s what you can do by adopting one of the seven (7 ) bedrooms in the Benton County Emergency Shelter (BCES) for youth that are homeless, runaway, giveaway, or throw away. Many of these youth under the age of 17 have come from situations that sometimes nightmares are made of. Sometimes they have lost hope and one little act of kindness or being treated as being special can make all the difference in the world.
The BCES have three bedrooms with 4 beds on the girls wing and there are 4 rooms with three beds each on the boys wing.
By adopting a room you have the opportunity to make these youth feel special and strengthen the healing process.
- Groups/individuals provide the labor and resources to decorate their adopted room
- Provide all materials and supplies to complete the project
- Recruit your own team for implementing the project
- Work with the Volunteer Coordinator on scheduling and room needs
- Maintain the room for one year with the option of renewing at the end of the year
- Agree to have plans for design and color approved in advance
- Agree to sign confidentiality forms
- Provide maintenance and upkeep for one year
What you get in return
- A true sense of having done something absolutely wonderful
- A paque outside the adopted room will be displayed with your name
- Advertising and Acknowledgement on the Youth Bridge Website, Facebook, and Newsletter
- Complimentary tickets to select VIP events
- Discounted tickets to select events
