Homelessness to Hope: a campaign to improve teen support services

Written by 

Barium Springs, a nonprofit that serves troubled youth, is hosting its first Giving Them Hope Breakfast at 8:30 April 25 at the new conference center in the Burrell Building at Southwestern Community College in Sylva.

The free, hour-long breakfast will include testimonials by teens who have used Hawthorn Heights, the nonprofit’s emergency runaway and homeless teen shelter, the only homeless teen shelter west of Asheville. 

The nonprofit is also kicking off its Homelessness to Hope campaign, which aims to raise $300,000 to renovate a new, larger building that will meet growing demands. The current facility is no longer safe or adequate for the level of at-risk youth it serves.

Register for the breakkfast or donate by calling www.bariumsprings.org or 828.231.5413.
