partners in action
Avenues for Youth is proud to work with local and national community partners who are determined to make a difference in youth homelessness. Our partners dedicate more than dollars to the cause. They step up to volunteer, make a birthday special for youth in our programs, provide vital items, and learn about the root causes of homelessness so that they can better advocate for system changes. Check out what our 2022 partners have been up to below.
Partner of the Month
TopLine Federal Credit Union is a vital partner of Avenues and has been making a difference in our work since 2017. The credit union finds unique and powerful ways to engage their customers and staff, often holding donation drives to collect important items for youth at Avenues. Not only have they collected winter gear, bedding and other important items, but TopLine is also a sponsor of Building on Dreams, Avenues' annual event.
Thank you TopLine and your awesome staff for your continued partnership!
