Welcome to Trevor Codington's Personal Page
For the second time, I will be sleeping outside the SAY Dream Center to advocate for the many kids who go to sleep without a home every night in Sonoma County. Social Advocates for Youth (SAY) provides critical services to youth in our community in dire need. Last year's experience impacted me deeply on a personal level, and our fundraising efforts provided a significant boost to SAY in their efforts to assist the youth in our community.
Between now and December 7, I am committed to fundraising for SAY and the thousands of youth and families they serve. Last year, our team of sleepers raised a significant amount of money. The year, our goals are bigger, and our fundraising goal has increased significantly. We made a difference last year. This year, we strive to make an even greater difference. The children of our community need and deserve our help.
Did you know that youth between the ages of 12-24 make up 25% of our homeless population in Sonoma County? Whether the burdens of homelessness come from a lifetime of poverty, the challenges of mental illness, or the threats of recurring abuse, the single most common finding is that youth who are self-sufficient have at least one stable relationship with a supportive adult. That’s where SAY steps in.
SAY’s services help homeless and disconnected youth stabilize their lives, find safe housing, explore their educational goals, and develop the skills to become contributing community and workforce members.
Today I ask you to help me support the work of SAY and give all youth the tools and skills they need to achieve self-sufficiency. Please click the donate button on this page and join us in ensuring that the trauma of homelessness and disconnection loosens its grip on the deserving, at-risk youth struggling in our community. On behalf of the lives you will change with your gift, thank you!
