Walk for William and other youth and young adults experiencing homelessness at the Walking for Dreams event! 

In person or virtually on Sunday, May 23 at 1:00pm.

By walking for Outreach, you will be walking alongside youth like William, who was dropped off at an adult shelter by his foster family just one day after his eighteenth birthday. Aged out of the foster care system, William was on his own—until he was introduced to Outreach. 

Our staff and volunteers provided William with access to community partners and the necessary resources to help him as he took his first steps into life as a young adult. Soon, William was making friends and maturing gracefully. 
 

With Outreach’s support, he was approved for the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services waiver and was placed in a beautiful boarding house. Eventually, he reconnected with his birth mother and moved to Evansville to be with her and his family. Now, because of your support, William is safe, happy, and thriving.

 

Every step you take with us makes the pathway clearer for youth like William. Start your own team with family and friends or else join our Outreach team as an individual to help us reach our fundraising goal of $20,000!
